Fundraiser of the week - Ruth Johns

September 15, 2017

Our fundraiser of the week is Ruth Johns, who has donated the proceeds from her book St Ann’s Nottingham: Inner City Voices, along with Tony Miller, founder of the St Ann’s Well Road Pre-Demolition (1970) Online Community.

Due to a muscle condition, Ruth was told she would never walk again. However, she overcame illness and spent years recording the life stories of residents of St Ann’s Well Road, which has now been demolished. 

Donations were raised by selling the last remaining 20 copies of the book online. Tony, who organised selling the books online, said "we thought it best that we go back to Ruth and ask her which charity she would prefer the money to go to and she said Action for M.E. without hesitation."

We would like to thank both Ruth and Tony for their kind support.
