Thanks SO much to everyone who donated and took part in our biggest event to date. The amount raised was completely amazing and we are very grateful; as will be the people that we can now help.
Keep following our Instagram to see how we spend it.
We were lucky to have a lovely winner - Eric Wyant from Seattle in Washington, USA. Eric flew in on 1st September, on the red-eye and sore-back, landing at 6.30am. A Limo met him at Heathrow and whisked him to the world famous Savoy hotel, in central London. Nikki and a couple of other BT helpers were on-hand to greet Eric. The hotel generously provided Eric with a suite which was very kind of them and very welcome after such a long journey.
Our plan was to let Eric sightsee for the rest of the day (or sleep) and then then to be collected the following day for the set visit and the meeting with Tom...
But then everything changed with a frantic phone call from Tom. His schedule had been changed and he was suddenly no longer filming the next day. Eric’s sleep would need to wait if he wanted to see Tom on set and hear the word ‘action.’
It was all very frantic. A taxi was hailed and we were on our way across town to the Warner Bros film studios. Marvel execs hovered nervously and clutched non-disclosure agreements which we all needed to sign, even Nikki! Eric met with Tom but the filming that was too secret for any of us to see - a wonder that they ever trust Tom!
Because of this, Tom invited Eric back to set two days later when he did get to see some filming and have lunch in his trailer which was probably not as good as The Savoy, but I guess, more exciting?
Eric will have to wait until the movie is released before he's given the pics that were taken of him with Tom on the set... but in the meantime, here are a few snaps of Eric in London.
Eric, you were a delight to host. Thank you for making the trip and once again, to all the people who support The Brothers Trust.
