I was delighted to be involved with local writer Rachel Cochrane’s moving radio play Benchmark, recorded earlier this year.

Inspired by the ‘In Loving Memory’ plaques found on park benches, it tells the story of a young single mum and the ghost of a prim spinster. They find that they have more in common than they realised.

I read the credits for the play which was produced locally at Fuse Media Centre.

The production is helping to raise much needed funds for a local hospice and has inspired a national writing competition.

40% of each entry fee for the competition will go towards Willow Burn Hospice. Entries will be accepted from 1st November2014 – 19th January 2015.
