PAPWORTH EVERARD WI
Our Zoom meeting took place on 16th June when, although fewer members than usual met, we enjoyed a great evening.
Following the usual business our speaker for the evening was Kate Kirk Writer and Lecturer who gave a delightful and very informative illustrated talk about her Amazing Aunt – Dame Cecily Saunders noted for her work in terminal care research and pioneer of the modern hospice movement. Dame Cecily worked throughout her life tirelessly to establish the importance of palliative care for terminally ill patients and their families and her work continues today with the expansion of Hospices all over the country and indeed many parts of the world.
Here are a couple of the photographs showing Dame Cicily in her early and latter years.
OUR NEXT MEETING IS A PICNIC IN THE PARK ON SATURDAY 24TH JULY – WEATHER PERMITTING. THIS WILL BE OUR FIRST FACE-TO-FACE MEETING
