Rhyme and Rea­son re­turns

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A DESK di­ary for 2015, packed with short sto­ries and po­ems on the theme of re­mem­brance, has gone on sale to raise money for the Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care char­ity.

This is the 24th year that Rhyme and Rea­son has been pub­lished.

To date, sales of the di­aries and pre­vi­ous for­mats have brought in more than £55,000 for the char­ity, which pro­vides end of life care at home for those suf­fer­ing from life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses.

Jill Wal­lis, a vol­un­teer who works for the char­ity, said: “Our con­trib­u­tors are mainly lo­cal but we also have en­tries from writ­ers across Bri­tain and from abroad.”

Con­tri­bu­tions for the di­ary were cho­sen in the form of a com­pe­ti­tion that was judged by poet Claire Tre­vien and au­thor Nick Wast­nage.

Rhyme and Rea­son is sold in Ren­nie Grove shops, and can be or­dered from the Ren­nie Grove web­site at www. ren­niegrove.org/ di­ary2015. It costs £5, plus postage and pack­ag­ing if or­dered from the web­site, and all pro­ceeds go di­rectly to Ren­nie Grove.
