'EastEnders' cast 'serve' up Wendy Richard tribute

Tuesday January 19, 2010

EastEnders stars including June Brown and Natalie Cassidy were doing their bit for charity and at the same time remembering their former co-star, the late Wendy Richard, this week.

In aid of The Lady Taverners organisation, the cast members sold a selection of Wendy's posessions that paid homage to her role in Are You Being Served?

To attract even more attention to their cause, the group dressed up as characters from the famous series and performed a short sketch.

Joining them on the floor of London's Selfridges was Wendy's widower John Burns and original co-star Nicholas Smith who played section manager Mr Rumbold.
