Author puts down pen to raise funds

CASH FOR THE CAUSE: Terry Wardle and daughter Claire.

Author puts down pen to raise funds

By Elizabeth Sweetman »@lizsweetmanWN #WENews

A WORCESTER author is using his experience in the world of print to raise money for charities that help people living with the same medical condition afflicting his youngest daughter.

Terry Wardle’s daughter, Claire, aged 33, suffers from Fibromyalgia, a condition that causes chronic and widespread pain.

Mr Wardle, an author and publisher, has now organised two fund-raising events to raise money for Britain’s two main charities Fibromyalgia Association and UK Fibromyalgia.

Breaking into Print will look at how aspiring writers can interest mainstream publishers and also examine the options for writers to publish and market their own work.

The three-hour event, at the Fownes Hotel, Worcester, on Saturday, June 18, will be for a maximum of 12 people so advance booking is important. The second event will be part of the first Worcestershire Literary Festival. Worcestershire Writers – Our Past in Print, will be an illustrated talk covering a wide range of writers who were born or lived in the county, as well as some famous names who passed through.

It will be held at the RGS Worcester Lecture Theatre, at 7pm on Friday, June 24.

Mr Wardle, of York Place, Barbourne, has previously raised money for charity through similar events and through sales of his book The History of Barbourne, on which he collaborated with Miss Wardle in 2007.

“Claire asked me if I could raise some money for the charities, so I organised these events,” he said.

“If I ran a marathon I’d probably drop down dead, but this way I can use my experience and do something I love while raising money too.”

Mr Wardle, aged 67, has been a published author since the mid-1980s, writing both local and national history, and fiction, including an award-winning children’s novel. Tickets for Breaking into Print cost £12 or concessions £10. To book a place visit or call 01905 610678.

Bookings for the Worcestershire Writers, which costs £5, or concessions £4 event can be made through the Worcestershire Literary Festival box office on 0845 6520621 or e-mail info@worcslitfest.
