Albert Finney’s generosity to Tuppenny Barn

You will have heard the sad news about the passing of the great actor Albert Finney on Friday. What you may be unaware of was his generosity, together with his wife Pene, towards the Tuppenny Barn project, living locally in Emsworth. We were delighted to welcome both Albert and his close friend Tom Courtney on our very first event that was held in the centre back in 2013. The walls were just temporary bales of straw at that time and it was still a bit of a building site! His final act of generosity was to pay for the solar tunnel that is dedicated to the Social Horticulture Therapy Project and used by our clients every Friday. We at Tuppenny Barn will be forever grateful to Albert and Pene for their generosity. Photo: Tom and Izzy Courtney, and Albert Finney
