CAROLINE Quentin, famous for her starring role in TV’s Jonathan Creek, has made it a very special 30th birthday for a Devon charity.

She has to be patron EDP Drug & Alcohol Services (previously Exeter Drugs Project) for its birthday year.

The charity supports people and their families who have problems associated with drug and alcohol use.

Working in prisons and the community, EDP has helped many thousands of people since it was formed in 1984 by a group of drug users and their families in the Exeter area.

Caroline, also well known for her role in Men Behaving Badly said: “ EDP is a Devon and Dorset based charity and that’s why it’s important to me, and it helps local people find help with their drug and alcohol problems.

“I like the fact that for people living in this area, in Devon where I live, they know that they can go somewhere to get help specifically for them where they live. The sort of help they get varies enormously but the great thing is that they are there to support them whatever problems they are having.

“Of course support isn’t just important for those who have issues with their drug and alcohol. It’s also really important to support their families too.”

If you would like someone to talk to about your drug and/or alcohol use please contact our Devon EDP Exeter East and Mid Devon service on 01392 492 360.

In celebration of their birthday EDP are hosting a Birthday Dinner and Auction which will take place on Saturday 14th June between 7.30pm and 1am at The Thistle Rougemont Hotel.

Tickets are £40 per person or £350 for a table of 10 people and are available at http://edp30thbirthdayparty.eventbrite.co.uk/

More details are available on EDP’s website www.edp.org.uk.
