“Missing Persons Educational Talk”

Recently I was asked to give a talk to raise funds for the Bitterne Spiritualist Church as, due to the UK lockdown, the Church has been affected. Along with this, Hospice is one of my foundations I often fundraise for and close to my heart, as it is for many. The proceeds will be shared between both organisations.

Once I decided to do a talk on missing persons, I realised how passionate I was about the subject and would like to pass my knowledge and experience on to others. I will be covering some of my experiences on the TV series Sensing Murder and other information on missing items, animals, pets and people. It is a sensitive and delicate subject that needs to be handled with care, responsibility and compassion.  The educational talk is 1 hour with an additional 15 minutes for questions.
Once you book and pay, as soon as I am able, I will email you the Zoom link.

$10 per person, all proceeds are donated between Hospice and Bitterne Spiritualist Church UK

We hope that you can join us at some or all of our presentations.  The church has a mortgage with the Spiritualists’ National Union of some £700 a month.  We do have a flat which generates income but with the current government lockdown in place for public meetings we need to raise revenue.  The SNU is extremely supportive in our difficulties.  Your help and support in our spiritual endeavours will help us to maintain our light to shine.  With the exception of talks all other meetings are free but you can, if you wish, give a donation through pay pal account spiritus4u@aol.com.  The church is a registered charity.
