Last Friday a lot of members came to listen to our guest speaker Brian Abram. He gave a very interesting and moving illustrated talk on how he came to write 6 books in the series ‘Grandad Wheels’. Brian goes to many primary schools reading out of his books and talking to the children, thus breaking down prejudices about people in wheelchairs.
Many of us had seen him recently on TV on the One Show or read about him at the website www.grandadwheels.com
After the break, with cake baked by our member Jenny, Lynne Hickin explained in fascinating details how she went about illustrating the books.
The books are being sold for £6.90. All proceeds go to two charities that offer support to people who have suffered a spinal injury – the ‘Spinal Injuries Association ‘and ‘Back Up’.
