In a slight sideways step to my usual self-promotional activity about me research, I’m instead promoting my friend Victoria Squire’s fundraising activity for St. Margaret’s Hospice.
While of course I am undoubtedly jealous of her upcoming trip to Peru, I wholeheartedly encourage as many of you as possible to throw her a fiver towards her trek. St. Margaret’s Hospice is somewhere that sadly nearly everyone in Somerset knows about, especially if they have had a relative who suffered a life-limiting illness. My own Grandad spent time there shortly before his death from cancer in 1990, and they made his last months much more comfortable than if he’d been in hospital. Vic has her own reasons for supporting the Hospice, which she explains on her fundraising page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Victoria-Squire
So please do consider donating even just £5.
Thanks. Normal linguistic will resume in the next post (promise!).
