A Bromley junior doctor is to share the limelight with a host of British stars with the release of a new film to raise awareness of climate change.

Tom Jackson, 31, is a member of the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir, who were invited to sing the soundtrack for the short film Love Song, which appears in cinemas this week.

The medics joined actors Charles Dance, David Gyasi, Jason Isaacs and Miranda Richardson to create a powerful three-minute film urging the British public to take action against climate change.

Pop group Elbow dedicated new album track Magnificent (She Says) to the choir, with the band’s Guy Garvey appearing on lead vocals.

Dr Jackson said: “I am standing up for what I believe in. I want our children and our children’s children to have the natural wonders of the world to see as they grow up.

“I love being a part of the choir and I shall definitely be wearing my green heart on Valentine’s Day to support #ShowTheLove.”

The film will be screened in Picturehouse Cinemas across the country from February 10 to 17 and widely across social media.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
