Tracy says “thank you” to Eddie Izzard

[from the Bexhill Observer]

FOR Glenco FC secretary Tracy Aston, Thursday’s re-opening of Bexhill Museum was an opportunity to say thank you to Eddie Izzard.
The top comedian, who spent his boyhood in Bexhill, had played a key part in helping to launch the Glenco/Bexhill United appeal fund to floodlight Polegrove for evening practice football sessions.

Eddie returned to the town as patron of Bexhill Museum to cut the ribbon and formally re-open the newly-extended building following its £2m+ extension.

But Eddie also gave generously of his time to sign autographs and meet the public.

Tracy was already on a high, having the previous evening received a £50,000 cheque from the People’s Millions on Meridian Tonight.
Tracy couldn’t wait to show Eddie the giant cheque after the opening ceremony.

“I felt it was so important for Eddie to see it. He gave us a donation after last year’s Bexhill Achievers Awards to start us off.

“He was so thrilled that we had got the £50,000 People’s Millions award.”
