#CheersGerryAnderson – Celebrate His Amazing Legacy

#CheersGerryAnderson – Celebrate His Amazing Legacy

Gerry Anderson passed away on Boxing Day 2012, exactly 8 years ago today. For many Anderson fans, it is a bittersweet time of year as we remember hearing the reports of his passing on the news and social media.

However, rather than focusing on losing the great man, we feel there is no better way to pay tribute to his extraordinary career and vision than by asking fans from all over the world to celebrate his amazing legacy with us.
