The TV and film star, whose most recent big screen appearance was in Stardust, was the first to sign a giant Christmas card at the Renault London West dealership in Park Royal.
The huge card carries Barnardo’s pledge ‘we believe in children’ and the charity has teamed with Renault Retail Group to get as many people as possible to sign it.
Every person signing the card is asked to make a donation to Barnardo’s, and the 150 staff at Renault London West will be encouraged to take part as an alternative to sending each other traditional Christmas cards.
Customers at the showroom will also be invited to join in and support the campaign. Similar giant cards will be on display at 19 other Renault Retail Group branches across the UK.
Ian Plummer, managing director of Renault Retail Group said: "As a group, we’re aiming for a grand total over £10,000. The funds raised will go to projects near the dealerships, which are all in large towns and cities where Barnardo’s does a great deal of positive work."
