Charity bosses in St Helens are trying to fulfil a terminally-ill man’s dying wish - by arranging for him to meet ex-Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.
Staff at the Honeyrose Foundation, whose founder Lynn Duffy was named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, also want to help put the man in touch with fellow TV presenters James May and Richard Hammond.
They are hoping a social media campaign will spark suffice interest to gain the attention of the three television stars.
The foundation, which is based in St Helens town centre, has already seen a series of tweets to the men retweeted by Twitter users.
Honeyrose wrote: “#RT@MrJamesMay Terminally Ill Gentleman, super huge fan! Not sure on prognosis, his last wish is to meet you guys. Please help! #Cancer”
It’s not known if either of Messrs Clarkson, May and Hammond have replied or even seen the tweets.
However, Honeyrose’s cause is sure to be bolstered by the fact that St Helens comedy legend Johnny Vegas, a patron of the foundation, has appeared several times of Top Gear.
Honeryrose was founded 10 years old with a mission to help make the wishes of people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses come true.
