Dot and her Donkeys

A Peak District charity is saying thank-you on September 1 to a supporter who is a real star – Dot Cotton of Eastenders.

Actress June Brown, who plays the tough-talking, chain-smoking character, is marking two decades of being the President and Patron of the trust which runs the Freshfields Donkey Sanctuary in Peak Forest.

The milestone is being marked with Dot Cotton’s Garden Party on Sunday, September 4, from noon to 4pm. Admission is free, and entertainment includes a steel orchestra, magic and vocal acts, strawberry cream teas and stalls.

Now I know where the rest of the cast of Eastenders came from.
