Chard woman receives degree from Sir Paul McCartney
4:00am Sunday 29th September 2013 in Somerset
BEATLES legend Sir Paul McCartney has made a young woman from Chard’s year.
Sofia Harrington, 19, received her foundation degree in performing arts from the veteran rocker at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) ceremony.
Mum Sim Harrington said: “I’m just delighted that she’s doing what she’s wanted to do since she was about ten. She’s worked really hard. It was a bit bizarre seeing her up there with Paul McCartney!”
Sofia, who attended Holyrood Academy, in Chard, has now begun studying for a degree in acting, also at LIPA.
