Doug’s lecture “Significant and Joyous Moments of being in the Mountains” which he gave on Saturday 7th March in The Market Hall at Wigton was well received by an enthusiastic and capacity audience. Anne Manger of CAN reports –
The venue was ideal for the talk and, with the tables displaying Nepalese goods on one side of the room and prints and posters on the other, the set up took one immediately into the mountains.
CAN would like to thank Joan Lancaster for all her hard work towards making the event so successful; without the dedication of such loyal supporters, beavering away behind the scenes, such an evening would not have been possible and certainly not as relaxed.
The help provided by Sandra Keaveney was also invaluable. As manager of the North Allerdale Development Trust, her responsibilities involve supporting and developing community projects. On Saturday evening these extended to taking care of the technical side of Doug’s presentation in making sure that the slides appeared on screen without a hitch and that the sound system was in good working order.
Sandra was complemented by Alison Dodd and Julia Webster who both work for Wigton Town Council. Their contribution via admin support and organising ticket sales, as well as Julia’s tireless efforts throughout the evening with the raffle, has been much appreciated.
And, last but by no means least, no CAN event takes place without the support of a small and dedicated band of volunteers who help with the sales of Nepalese goods and Doug’s posters and prints; in this case sincere thanks are extended to David and Lynne Nightingale whose experience and loyalty to the charity continue to be very much appreciated.
We all look forward to welcoming friends and supporters to Doug’s next talk on Kangchenjunga at the Keswick Mountain Festival, Theatre by the Lake on Thursday, 14th May at 7.30 pm. Details of how to obtain a ticket are on Event Listings page of this website or click here for online ticket sales .
