Comedian Signs We Love Lichfield Celebrity T-Shirt

Comedian Tim Vine is the latest celebrity to sign the We Love Lichfield t-shirt.  The World record holder for telling the most jokes (499 in one hour) and Edinburgh Fringe Best Joke Award Winner for both 2010 and 2014 (“I decided to sell my Hoover… well it was just collecting dust.”) appeared at the Lichfield Garrick as part of his tim-vine-tim-timinee-tim-timinee-tim-tim-to-you tour.  The packed theatre roared with laughter at all the jokes of which there were too many to remember.

We Love Lichfield Donor Advisor Julian Fisher was lucky enough to meet Tim before the show.  Tim signed three shirts which will eventually be auctioned off and all money raised with go the We Love Lichfield Fund which raises money and gives grants of upto £1000 to voluntary groups across the District of Lichfield.  Julian said: “It was a privilege to meet Tim who kindly signed the t-shirts and had photos taken just a few moments before the show.  He asked about the Fund and wished everyone luck with reaching our target of £1/2m which would mean £25,000 would be given away every year to voluntary groups across the Lichfield District every year in perpetuity.”
