'I attended your talk at the Raystede Stargazing Evening last night. I just wanted to say thank you for your excellent talk which was very enlightening. I had not previously taken much interest in astronomy but you certainly fired my imagination through your talk and I've ordered a copy of your book. Thanks again.' Paul Madge
'You're a great speaker.'
'I had no idea. This is amazing!'
Having been invited to be the guest presenter for the Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare charity Stargazing Event, it was an honour to participate in their fundraising evening. I have raised many tens of thousands of pounds for 'human' charities over the years, but it was a privilege to help raise significant funds for our fellow creatures on this wonderful planet. Such a worthy cause.
The lecture hall was packed, with many having to stand at the rear and along the sides. Fabulous! As always, my talk, 'Look Up, Live It, Love It!' played its part in changing perspectives and feedback was tremendous.
‘Thanks so much for coming to give a talk at our centre last Saturday at the Stargazing Evening. We received really positive feedback and our supporters really enjoyed your talk. Thanks again for giving a wonderful talk!’
Jeanette Campbell, Fundraising Officer, Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare
Supported by the Seven Sisters Astronomical Society - with their raft of telescopes and, incredibly, clear skies - a fabulous evening was had by all.
Well done to the Raystede team for all their hard work, and thank you to my terrific audience for making it such a memorable and hugely successful night.
