A special ‘thank you’ to Cath Arnold, Sharon Clancy, Deborah Dean, Dominic Head, Janet Kavanagh, Martin Leighton, Kate Robertson, Dawn Simpson, Bill Smith, Keri Usherwood and Peter Usherwood for their support through the Lenton Abbey group, ‘The Alan Sillitoe Commemoration Fund’ a local committee of devoted Sillitoe followers.

This group, formed in the early days after Alan’s death in 2010, have generously donated to the current Alan Sillitoe Memorial Fund the £1,111 which they raised, and this amalgamation of funds will enable us to reach our target more quickly.
