    Actress in spinal injury charity appeal

    Actress in spinal injury charity appeal

    A BAFTA award-winning actress has gone on TV to appeal on behalf of a charity that supported her friend who suffered spinal injuries in a car accident.

    Broadchruch star, Olivia Colman featured on BBC1’s monthly Lifeline programme, which sees a well-known personality introduce the work of a charity and appeal for donations, promoting the work of Back Up.

    The charity, which supports people affected by spinal cord injuries, holds a special place in her heart after it helped her school friend, Clair Turnbull, who was told she would never walk again following a car accident in Africa.


    Clair was just 25-years old when she suffered the life-changing injuries. She went on one of Back Up’s courses – and Colman saw first-hand the positive impact that it had on her friend.

    Now the actress is appealing for people to make donations to the charity, which she says helped Clair re-capture her appetite for life through a combination of practical and psychological support.

    Colman hopes viewers will give generously to help people with paralysis face the future.
