May the Fourth be with Jodie!

Jodie Whittaker has joined Brian Cox and Ewan McGregor to support the Geeky T-Shirt awareness drive and fundraiser for a charity helping terminally children in Scotland. Children’s Hospices Across Scotland is better known as CHAS, a charity which provides vital hospice care services throughout Scotland to support the whole family. As part of the Share Your Joy campaign, on May 4th, CHAS are encouraging the public to show allegiance to their favourite science-fiction, fantasy, cartoon or musical hero and by virtue the charity itself, by digging out their favourite geeky t-shirt to wear on the day. Participants are encouraged to share their efforts online and donate just £3 by texting ‘Geeky 3’ to 70450. The event also included a ‘Big Geeky Quiz’ on Facebook Live, hosted by CBeebies actor James Mackenzie. CHAS has had to dramatically transform the way in which it provides its services and have set up Scotland’s first-ever virtual hospice to support children and families who are having to completely self-isolate. CHAS family support teams are also offering an expanding range of interactive activities, art clubs, storytelling and conference calls to children and parents.
