Born in Norfolk and now retired. I was a secretary and also worked in Insurance for many years. For the past 12 years I have given talks to raise funds for our charity “Project Dukem” Ethiopia, helping disadvantaged people in Lalibela and funding the feeding programme for a small school for hiv/aids orphans in Dukem, 35 km south of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. Since retiring we have travelled extensively and my talks are on some of the places visited.
I also enjoy gardening, knitting and reading and I am a member of the local WI and U3A.
I live in Brundall, near Norwich.
About my Talks...
There are 12 main talks (listed below – please scroll down) covering Africa, Central Asia, Central America. All talks start with details of Project Dukem. I bring a laptop and projector and screen if needed. Talks last 45 to 60 minutes and I am happy to take questions and chat after the presentation. I have given talks to WI’s and other womens groups and Probus and various mens clubs plus U3a’s, RAFA and Church groups and have had many return bookings.
