Call The Midwife evening at King's Lynn Guildhall
One of the stars of Britain's biggest TV shows, Call The Midwife, has appeared at the St George's Guildhall in Lynn.
Stephen McGann, who plays Dr Turner in the series, came to Lynn last night to appear at a benefit evening for the King's Lynn Winter Night Shelter.
With him was his wife and writer of the series, Heidi Thomas and they spoke on the exact 10th anniversary of the show first airing on television.
Both of them spoke about the series to a sold-out audience at the Guildhall.
Tonight's episode of Call The Midwife on BBC One featured a storyline about homelessness, typical of the many social issues the series tackles.
The couple are personal friends of Lucy McKitterick, winter night shelter co-ordinator.
Lucy said of the night: "Heidi and Steve have been supporters of the Night Shelter for a number of years. We were delighted to welcome them to Lynn last night for a really enjoyable evening and a lovely chance for people to come along and meet them and hear their passion for the stories behind the show.
"Heidi talked about her work as story creator helping give people a voice – from people living with Down's Syndrome to people suffering from addiction and homelessness (spoiler alert for tonight's episode!), among many others.
"The Night Shelter is also here in Lynn to help give people a voice, the homeless in our town in 2022, and we're grateful to everyone who came along last night and supported us and had such a great time!"
King's Lynn Winter Night Shelter in Blackfriars Road is open from October until June now helping the homeless of the borough find a place to stay.
