Gail Porter Features in the Lives & Times Bowel Cancer Charity Book

Gail Porter at Winter Wonderland 2014
Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is like a home from home for Gail Porter. I think back to when Gail agreed to be photographed in December 2014 for the book it was the obvious choice of location to meet up. However it didn't turn out quite so simple as, unbelievably, we somehow missed each other. Thankfully we were able to try again the following week, and we eventually managed to meet up on what was a very cold and festive evening. I can't believe that this was over two years ago now.

Gail was really lovely and very enthusiastic in getting involved in the book. This photo also shows her wearing the Beating Bowel Cancer tie to help raise awareness about bowel cancer. The chapter makes reference to our ride on the "Ski Slope" where stupidly I hadn't realised what I was letting myself in for! Lets just say 360 degrees! 😱Of course meeting Gail was a brilliant photo opportunity, and how many people can count themselves lucky enough to have photographed the beautiful Gail Porter? In terms of the fun factor during the creation of the book this experience takes some beating. The good news is that Gail has also agreed to be in the next book, which will also be raising funds for the Beating Bowel Cancer charity.

My mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2012. For four and a half years she fought many battles with the cancer spreading to her left lung and finally the brain. Sadly Mum passed away at the end of August after her brave and courageous fight. The book is now raising funds in her memory. If anything the whole point of doing the book has been even more reinforced by this devastating loss. Please support this fundraising book as every sale counts both in raising money and raising awareness about bowel cancer.

To see how you can purchase the Lives & Times book, which features a chapter on Gail Porter click here. All proceeds I receive are being donated to the Beating Bowel Cancer charity with over £3100 already raised. Also just added to my online fundraising store is a fantastic limited edition Lives & Times screen print created by artist Adam Green  inspired by the book.
