Poetry reading video of “Poetry Giving” launch

A poetry reading video by Anita Williams

To mark the official launch of Poetry Giving Midlands Air Ambulance Charity hosted my latest Poetry Reading on 15th April 2015

Here’s my Youtube video which shows snippets from the evening. I was particularly delighted to hear Roger Pemberton, a valued trustee of this wonderful charity, give praise for my reading and the book’s contents. I was very grateful for his time and for his generous words. Hope you enjoy this brief snapshot of the successful evening.

Thank you for sharing this page for a wonderful cause.

Remember, every Poetry Giving book sold raises funds to keep Midlands Air Ambulance Charity missions in the air.

On my recent visit to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity base at RAF Cosford, I spent time with the dedicated crew there and I told them they were heroes. I was really taken aback by their response. They told me that I was a hero too!  They wouldn’t be able to run their missions without fundraising, indeed they are 100% funded by the generosity of fundraisers who understand what needs to be done to get them in the air. Each mission costs £2500 minimum.

Well… with a reaction like that, you can imagine how motivated I was to get this book right, and Richard and Tim inspired me to write a poem about the charity itself which appears in the book, entitled “Heroes of the Golden Hour.

Now that Poetry Giving” is available for sale, it is wonderful to think that those hours of writing can contribute something worthwhile to this extraordinary bunch of people at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
