Description

In autumn 1964 the infamous UK Sunday newspaper the 'News of the World', in conjunction with the 'Variety Club of Great Britain', ran a competition whereby readers could win a pair of tickets to The Beatles' Christmas Show at the Odeon, Hammersmith in London by donating to the 'Toy Fund for Children'.

This one-page letter dated 'November 17 1964' is addressed to one such winner who received a precious pair of tickets which, sadly but not surprisingly, are not included here.

However, what is included is a small one sided 'thank you' card of George Harrison with his printed handwritten inscription (measuring 13.5 x 8cms).

The original envelope postmarked the same date as the letter is included.

Very few, if any, of these letters or cards survived.
