“I want this to bring in serious, considered poetry, but also to have a broader, public appeal, to boost donations at this most critical time in NHS history." says Andrew, who has waived his fee as the first donation towards Write Out Loud’s target of £10,000.

"We  need you to make a donation, as the NHS is going through the toughest time it has ever seen.”  explains Kirsty Mitchell, who plays Faith Cadogan in the BBC series Casualty.
