Sir Ken Dodd, OBE was an English comedian, singer-songwriter and actor. He was also a supporter of Variety, the Children’s Charity and our thoughts are very much with his family at this time.

Duncan Syers, Variety’s Chief Barker said:

Ken Dodd was a loyal supporter of Variety. He had a remarkable life and our Charity was one of the lucky ones to have received his support and dedication.

Our tribute will be only one of many that you will have received. However, at Variety, we particularly remember a man who was most generous with his time for charitable causes.

On behalf of all at Variety, the Children’s Charity, we remember a remarkable man and wish his family all our sympathies.
