So we were all surprised recently when we saw Jonno jumping around excitedly as he took a call. Whatever could it be? Turns out that comedian Bill Bailey‘s agent was on the phone!
Bill had heard through the grapevine that our August fundraiser of the month, Emily Thackray, is a big fan, and he wanted to get in touch with her. As Emily is currently in hospital awaiting a lung transplant we all thought that this was a great idea.
And so, after some emailing back and forth it turns out that Emily and Bill manged to hook up for a nice long call – and that Bill is interested in building awareness about transplants. You can read all about it on Emily’s blog here.
Warm fuzzies all round here at JG! Especially coz we’re all huge Bill Bailey fans – and now we know for sure that not only is he funny, he’s also a really nice guy. Awwwwww…
P.S. What’s your favourite Bill Bailey song or comedy moment? I like The Hokey Cokey in the style of Kraftwerk, personally.
