Now, a statue for Jade GoodyApril 2nd, 2009 - 1:09 pm ICT by IANS
London, April 2 (IANS) Late reality TV star Jade Goody is set to be commemorated with a statue near her childhood home.
The honour is likely to be granted in recognition of the efforts of the cancer-stricken star to encourage young women to be screened for cervical cancer, reported the Mirror online.
“The council has plans for the Dickens Estate (in South London) area where Jade grew up, and I’m sure we could do something,” said Bob Skelly, chair of Bermondsey community council in South London.
“It’s wonderful news,” said Goody’s spokesperson, Max Clifford.
Goody died of cancer March 22.
