Depp becomes a patron after being pictured at rescue centre

MOVIE star Johnny Depp is to give his backing to a Tunbridge Wells wildlife rescue centre following his visit earlier this month.

As reported in the Times, the Pirates of the Caribbean star dropped into to the Folly Wildlife Rescue Centre on June 2 where he became enamoured by badger Freddie Mercury.

His visit received plenty of local and national media attention and was even immortalised by Times cartoonist Peppy.

The 58-year-old actor’s trip to the centre followed a ‘recent break’ with rock star friend Jeff Beck, who is a patron of the wildlife charity, and came just after Mr Depp won his multimillion-dollar defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Now the rescue centre has revealed that the Johnny Depp has also decided to become a patron of the charity.

In a social media post last week, the charity said: “Following the success of our patron Jeff Beck’s tour with his good friend Johnny Depp & Johnny’s visit to Folly to see for himself the Trust’s work with wildlife we’re very pleased to announce that Johnny has done us the great honour of agreeing to become a patron.”
