In memory of Liz Welch

1960 - 2017

So far we have raised


Liz had many talents and attributes. She was a gifted artist, a loving mother and wife. and a lynchpin of the family. She wrote an amazing piece about dying that should help anyone else in the same situation. It is on her blog; called "All good things must come to an end". She was positive about everything she did, including dying. She wanted very much that her death might do some good for others and perhaps stop other women facing their own mortality from this cruel disease. This charity was her choice, So, if you cared about her, or love her like I do, Please donate as generously as you can. Thank you. Bobbie

I was delighted to be able to raise the donation by selling some of Liz's workshop items on Ebay - which I brought back to Sussex ( I am a long distance member of Derbyshire Branch) from Regional Day in May.

From a member of Nolitex, for purchasing some of Lizs stash of jewellery findings. A lovely way to remember her when they get used and made into jewellery pieces.
