Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PEOPLE - JAMIE MER­RILL

LON­DON: Johnny Depp, the Golden Globe-win­ning ac­tor, has do­nated money to the Great Or­mond Street Hos­pi­tal who treated his daugh­ter, Lily-Rose.

He said that he hoped peo­ple would “dig deep” for what he called a “mag­i­cal hos­pi­tal”.

“The dark­est days of my fam­ily’s life were spent within the walls of Great Or­mond Street Hos­pi­tal. It was an ex­tremely anx­ious time, full of un­knowns, and the most fright­en­ing pe­riod of our lives. But, owing to the phe­nom­e­nal care shown by all the staff, they not only brought us con­tin­ued hope on a daily ba­sis, but ul­ti­mately saved my daugh­ter’s young life.”

Lily-Rose Depp, now a 16-year-old model and ac­tress, was ad­mit­ted to the hos­pi­tal in 2007, aged seven. She had fallen se­ri­ously ill while her fa­ther was film­ing Sweeney Todd at Pinewood Stu­dios.

’I will be for­ever

He said: “I was amazed to wit­ness the nurses, doc­tors, and all in­volved, ap­proach their work with such great LON­DON: She’s spo­ken out about her re­luc­tance to leave Aus­tralia and look­ing at Lady Kitty Spencer’s re­cent In­sta­gram feed it’s not hard to see why.

The 24-year-old so­cialite who grew up in Cape Town has been soak­ing up the sun­shine and tak­ing in the beau­ti­ful views as she en­joys a stay on the Or­pheus Is­land, a se­cluded des­ti­na­tion on the Great Bar­rier Reef. As well as doc­u­ment­ing the beau­ti­ful scenery Lady Kitty has also been seen show­ing off her shape.

In one snap Princess Diana’s dili­gence and pu­rity of heart that no mat­ter the sever­ity of the sit­u­a­tion, ev­ery child was treated with the same love and ex­per­tise. By all this, I was pro­foundly moved and I will be for­ever grate­ful and eter­nally be­holden to th­ese in­fin­itely coura­geous, kind and pro­fes­sional in­di­vid­u­als.”

Depp went on to praise the “world-class skills and knowl­edge” of the hos­pi­tal’s med­i­cal teams.

Depp, known for his roles in Alice in Won­der­land and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, added: “I hope peo­ple dig deep and give gen­er­ously to this mag­i­cal hos­pi­tal, so it can con­tinue to be a home away from home for sick chil­dren and their fam­i­lies, and house the world­class skills and knowl­edge that will hope­fully help all of our ba­bies to get bet­ter.” – The In­de­pen­dent niece is seen wear­ing a bright red ban­deau bikini as she takes a dip in crys­tal-clear wa­ter.

Kitty is also pic­tured with a snorkel mask out and a plung­ing wet suit. And it ap­pears that dur­ing her stay Kitty has been making the most of the des­ti­na­tion’s fa­cil­i­ties.

Kitty has been en­joy­ing her time in Aus­tralia and as well as at­tend­ing events in Sydney where she was also spot­ted hit­ting up the beach with me­dia per­son­al­ity James Tobin.

The blonde, who was thought to be in a re­la­tion­ship with property ty­coon, Nic­colo Barat­tierir di San Pi­etro, 44, has also trav­elled up some of the east coast of the coun­try.

She had jet­ted out­for the Mel­bourne Cup and the horserac­ing sea­son and she thor­oughly en­joyed her time at the races.

And it ap­pears that the beauty has really fallen for Aus­tralia, dur­ing her time here.

Speak­ing at the pre­miere of the movie In The Heart Of The Sea in Sydney last week Lady Kitty said: “I’m hav­ing a won­der­ful time and I really, really, don’t want to go home. I think Emi­rates might just be like ‘Can you go home now’.” – Daily Mail
