Introducing Talitha's patron, Tim McInnerny

Please support Talitha in any way you can - it does change people's lives.

Tim has starred in numerous stage and screen productions, including Blackadder and Notting Hill, and has graced the stage in lead roles at the National Theatre and with the RSC. We are delighted that he has agreed to become Talitha Arts’ first patron, not least as he believes passionately in the healing and restorative powers of the Creative Arts.
