Hi-de-Hi! star Su Pollard gives support to Lauderdale House’s £2.1million restoration campaign
The star of 1980s sitcom Hi-de-Hi! has given her support to a £2.1million fundraising campaign to restore a historic Highgate house.
Su Pollard, who played chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw in the BBC show, gave a talk at Lauderdale House in Highgate Hill to support the 16th-century mansion’s restoration campaign, Lauderdale Transformed.
The actress, who is well known for her outlandish dress sense, spoke to West End actor Tim McArthur about her other television roles earlier this month, including on sitcom You Rang, M’Lord?.
She also gave the audience an insight into her singing career, during which she scored a number two hit in 1986 with Starting Together.
The evening raised more than £1,000 for Lauderdale Transformed.
Lauderdale House director Katherine Ives said: “She was absolutely charming. It was a real delight.”
