A few weeks ago I received some very sad news, one of the members of The Writers at Lovedean, John Palmer, sadly passed away. He was taken by that truly horrible disease, cancer, and we will feel his loss.
However, despite the fact The Writers at Lovedean are a small group I was once again surprised by the generosity of our members. Earlier this year we had run a charity short story competition to raise money for Portsmouth MS, and everyone just threw themselves into all the various jobs. Everyone helped with marketing, judging, sending out the prizes. So, I was taken aback that members wanted to do another charity event so soon.
The lovely, Jules Garvey-Welch, playwright, and author of ‘The Field Street Monologues’ kindly jumped into action and organised a coffee morning at her home, with the proceeds going to cancer research.
Jules proved to be the hostess with the mostess and provided a lovely selection of cakes and biscuits. It was nice to spend a relaxed couple of hours chatting with friends, and Jules’s kindness was greatly appreciated.
