Poet writes special piece for Poppy Appeal launch
A CHESHAM poet helped launch the 2015 Poppy Appeal by performing a piece she wrote just for the occasion.
On Saturday, Susan Lacey, 67, from Chesham, performed specially written poetry in aid of the launch of the 2015 Poppy Appeal in Aylesbury within the Friar Square Shopping Centre and also in a gazebo outside the Royal British Legion drop-in centre, in High Street.
Susan said she found it ‘a rewarding and emotional experience’.
Ms Lacey, who was written thousands of poems, has published two books, including At The Drop of a Hat, which is a collection of poetry, and children’s book Jolly Quickly the Jumping Bean.
She is also well-known for her unique performances of her poetry, where she dons hats and props and entertains a wide number of clubs and societies.
