When Ripper Street star Jerome Flynn walked into a Pembrokeshire charity shop recently, manager Mel John ‘glued’ him for a good cause.

The actor, famous for his roles in Game of Thrones, Ripper Street and Soldier Soldier, donated two Ripper Street costumes and a script to the Paul Sartori charity shop in Fishguard some time ago.

But when he came to browse the bargains last week, Mel asked him to sign and authenticate the popular TV drama’s goodies to maximize their earning potential for the charity.

Duly signed by the star, all of the items are now for sale on Paul Sartori’s ebay store, meaning a member of the public has a great chance of picking up some really great TV memorabilia.

The star had handed over two suits he wore on the set of Ripper Street and a signed script from the popular BBC drama, to raise money for Pembrokeshire end-of-life charity Paul Sartori.

The costumes were worn by Flynn’s Ripper Street character Bennet Drake, a detective sergeant investigating a murder on the streets of Whitechapel.

“He comes around quite often,” Mel said. “He’s a good customer.

“It’s a fantastic gift. I can’t thank him enough it’s wonderful. We hope it will make a lot of money. »
