A great night had by all at the Free Word Centre, where our fabulous friends at TLC, organised our annual fundraising literary event, on the 25th November. The night was hosted by our patron Melissa Benn and we had a full house of supporters & friends. We were treated to readings from writer and actress Eleanor Bron, alongside authors; Diana Evans, Jackie Kay and Ali Smith. With Simon Fanshawe leading the auction, there was laughter and competitive bidding. Great items went under the hammer, including; Three beautifully bound 1859 volumes of Shakespeare’s works, one hour flying lesson taking off from Elstree arodome and a week in an 14th century house in the village of La Grasse, Languedoc-Roussillon!
We would really like to thank everyone that made this event possible and our supporters for giving so generously! We are pleased to report the event raised £5,624
