NEWS UPDATE: Loss of a good friend of the library

We are very sad to report the death of John Prentice, until recently our Treasurer and Membership Lead.  John was a tireless supporter of the library, maintaining our financial records and reporting thereon, giving wise counsel at our Executives, a regular supporter of Focal events where he was always first to help set up & take down and a very helpful link with the Primary School where he had served as a governor for quite some time.

John resigned from our Executive when his health declined but we are all stunned to learn of his passing and send condolences to Sue and to family and friends.  We will have fond memories of his loyal support and we will miss his enthusiasm and wise counsel.


EVENT UPDATE: Grand Prize Raffle

Congratulations to Trish Wright on winning the Lenovo laptop in the  Focal Grand Prize Raffle which was drawn in the library on 24 August by Evan Phipps, son of Stuart Phipps who sourced the laptop, organised the raffle and is installing the computer for the lucky winner.

Our thanks to Stuart for sourcing this valuable raffle prize and for organising the event and to Evan for drawing the lucky winning ticket.

The event raised £400.00 towards Focal's annual fundraising target.  We wish Trish much enjoyment with her computer.
