Wish You Were Here?
A collection of personal postcards penned for Cumbria by Britain's most famous faces
Following the floods in November 2009 Cumbria Tourism launched the Wish You Were Here campaign encouraging celebrities to send postcards to Cumbria and help spread the word that the county was open for business.
The response from celebrities was overwhelming and over 100 handwritten postcards were received from stars including Dame Judi Dench, Richard E. Grant, Sir Patrick Stewart, Tess Daly, Leigh Francis and Jonny Wilkinson, all detailing the things they love most about Cumbria.
This unique postcard collection has now been collated into the Wish You Were Here Book which costs just £6 and is being sold to raise money for the Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association, RNLI, Great North Air Ambulance and Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund.
All books will be posted Second Class Recorded.
