LETTER: ‘Memories’ book sale will help Alzheimer’s Society

Share this article

You included an article in the Colne Times of April 1st headlined “Stories from History”, giving details of a recently published book entitled “Memories”.

This was written by my son, Lincoln Betteridge and was a compilation of my husband Alan’s memories and his descent into Alzheimer’s.

However, what was omitted was the fact that all proceeds from any sale will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society and the fact the book is on sale at the Northern Life offices, as well as at The Bookshop in Colne.

Alan was also very well known in Nelson as we lived there for 22 years.

I think it might be of interest to your Nelson readers as well as those from Colne and any money raised as a result of sales will benefit a much needed charity.
