Homegrown TARDIS for Charity

A Grantham father is building a full size replica TARDIS to raise money for the Sandon school that his 6 year old daughter Jodie will be attending from January. Jodie has Down’s Syndrome and the Grantham Journal quotes her father, Billy,

"I’m a full-time carer for Jodie and she often has to go to the hospital for operations and things so doing this kind of project should help take my mind off it."

"I’m hoping when she sees it she will recognise it and If I can raise any money it will be for something which will help her so I’ll know in my heart of hearts that she will benefit."

Billy plans to display the replica TARDIS in the town center and will charge people a pound to have their photo taken with it.

So, if you live or are visiting the area early next year go and have your photo taken with a TARDIS and support a local school!

Billy may even auction the TARDIS replica off after the fund raising – so watch the Grantham Journal for further news!
