THERE'S a special message at the charity preview of the new James Bond film Quantum of Solace, at the Hollywood Cinema on Thursday - from a 007 himself!
Sir Roger Moore, the longest-serving actor in the role, has recorded an introduction which will be played out to the audience before the film starts.
Sir Roger is currently promoting his autobiography, My Word is My Bond, and while doing an interview for BBC Radio Norfolk he agreed to endorse the charity event which is being staged to raise money for the Palliative Care East Appeal.
“He was only too happy to do it,” said Radio Norfolk's Tony Mallion, who is a patron of the appeal and organising the event.
“He was in a studio in London but I still couldn't believe I was talking to him,” said Tony.
Sir Roger revealed his personal favourite was his third outing in the role, The Spy Who Loved Me.

“I told him that I'd first seen that film on the same screen we'd be using on Thursday. In fact it was a private screening which was held for the Yarmouth Mercury staff all those years ago,” said Tony.
Some tickets are still available for the Quantum of Solace screening which starts at 7.30pm. People are invited to wear dinner jackets and posh frocks if they wish but it's very much dress optional.
Patrons are reminded not to bring mobile phones which may be taken off them by security guards until the end of the film. Tight security surrounds the screening because of fears of piracy ahead of the film's release in the States two weeks later.
The special raffle on the night will now include two pieces of Bond memorabilia from the new film, donated by the Hollywood Cinema.
The Hollywood Box Office number is 852600.
A FASHION show held at Gorleston Golf Club raised more than £1100 for the Palliative Care East Appeal. The sell out show saw over 100 women enjoy afternoon tea while watching a fashion show with daywear from Palmers and evening wear from Sophisticats. Thanks goes to all the models and helpers who gave their time and everybody who donated raffle prizes, thanks also goes to the lady captain Jackie Walsh, Pat Griffiths, Pat West, Sue Smith, Donna Titcombe, Wendy Cole and Jane from Viyella.
THERE is just a week left before Rick Wakeman, who revels in his new title of Grumpy Old Man, appears at the Ocean Room, Gorleston. The top rock singer is scheduled to appear on Saturday, November 1 in aid of the Palliative Care East Appeal.
The major event is being organised by Great Yarmouth Haven Rotary Club.
Spokesman Ian McCreadie said: “There is still time to book a ticket. Rick would normally charge £12,000 for an appearance but we have managed to negotiate a much lower figure and all of the evening's funds will go to the appeal, so we hope people will come along for a fabulous evening and help the appeal.”
Tickets are £45 and available by calling Screenprint Plus on 01493 440292.
