A charity event was held at Bertram’s in Warkworth in March to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care in memory of Ray Holmes.
A cheque for £2,700 was presented at the event. This money was raised over ten months and then another £525 was raised on the night from book sales, donations and a splendid raffle. Huge thanks were expressed to all the supporters; Bertram’s for their generous hospitality, Peter Regan who was dressed as a characterful and masterly hermit, Phil Stuckey for his great music, Darryn Wade for amazing photographs and Darren Holmes whose daffodil head gear was an unforgettable highlight.
I wrote the Hermit’s Tale in memory of my brother. The book and two other local products, the Warkworth Guide and the Village Colour in Scroll are currently on sale at the village store, the Greenhouse and Cabosse in Warkworth.
They are also available on line from northern-heritage.co.uk
