My dearest friend and Hattie's wonderful "Aunty Pops", Poppy Gamble, nee Roberts, of Truro, passed away due to secondary breast cancer on January 13 last year leaving her husband and two young sons.
Just a few weeks after her death, Poppy’s wonderful mum Bridget found the manuscript of Magical Journey, a children’s book she had written and illustrated when she was just 12.
Bridget recently told me:
“Poppy would be thrilled to think that her wonderful story will now give pleasure to countless children across the UK. She would be equally delighted to know that all proceeds from the sale of the book will go to support Penhaligon’s Friends and Secondary 1 – two charities very close to the hearts of everyone in the family.
“I think Poppy would be delighted and proud that the book is being published.”
All proceeds from sales of the book will go to the nominated charities.
