So please leave your black ties in the wardrobe and instead wear something that reminds you of our Celia.In order to gauge numbers can I ask that you please let me know whether you will be attending the funeral and also if you are joining us at the Nottingham Belfry afterwards. Please can you email Mo on email@example.com or text 07970420713 by Tuesday 22nd May. and please also let Mo know if you are vegetarian/vegan or have other dietary requirements.If I may make one further request – we would like to limit flowers to those from the immediate family only, however, if you would like to make a small donation in lieu of sending flowers, I’d like to direct you to the Fungal Infection Trust and in particular their genetic research campaign. I have set up a virginmoneygiving page in Celia’s memory: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/InmemoryofCeliaCooper-Celia Clayton. IF THE LINK DOES NOT WORK THEN: www.virginmoneygiving.com ...go on the site and in search box under 'make a donation' you can type in 'Linda Desmond' and you will find the page Here is a message from Linda Cooper- Clayton, who was Celia Clayton’s partner for the last 9 years and her wife for the past week. Celia was diagnosed in January with a fairly rare condition known as Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis – a fungal infection of the lungs. Despite all efforts to combat the infection, on 20th April Celia lost her brave battle. Some of you may have already been aware that she had been ill but probably no one knew the full extent and the potential for such a catastrophic outcome. It has been shockingly rapid and I don’t mind admitting that I am devastated, as are her family and those friends who have been close by during this time. We will be arranging an HD extra memorial walk.....details to follow Come for a hike with us...?
WELCOME TO OUR WALKS We're a friendly group of lesbians who meet every month, usually every third Sunday. We normally walk 6-8 miles in the Peak District, Leicestershire or Nottinghamshire and always end with a tea shop or pub! The group has been active for over 20 years and all the walks are led by volunteers. See our walks list and join us next time. Please note that if it is very snowy, we may cancel the walk so please check back here if the weather looks bad.
