B7 Cast and Crew
Sally Knyvette: The Liberator Poems, Raising Funds for AgeUK

Sally Knyvette has created a wonderful fund-raising idea for these strange and worrying times.

Sally filmed herself reading a series of uplifting poems, which fans can view on YouTube. She called these her LIBERATOR POEMS, after the most beautiful ship in the galaxy, in the hope that they would raise the spirits of those watching. A JustGiving page in aid of AgeUK London was set up, where B7 fans can enjoy Sally's lovely photos and inspiring messages, and are invited to donate to the charity.

Over £3,000 has been raised - more than 100% of the target. Sally said: "Enormous thanks to all of you who have been so generous...I am thrilled with the response."
