Hi Sue,
As you can see from my email address I’m working in St Helens but would like to get to meet more of the local organisations, such as WISH (love the acronym!).
Ive been giving talks for many years now but not about Fairfield hospital. I spent 26 years of my life working for the late Lord Leverhulme as his Chauffeur, which brought me into contact with the royals and the aristocracy. The talk is a guaranteed humourous, no falling to sleep, ‘Downton Abbey’ style insight into how the other half live, including anecdotes about the Queen, Queen Mother and other members of the family.
If you would like to know more, then please use my home email which is rehnph@me.com or call 07969 292042
