Many of you have been fortunate enough to have met Irene over the years.  She is just filled with love and joy and talent.  Her years as President of Project Linus, her helping run the pennants for the Olympics or just mooching around the Festival of Quilts chatting to different people and just spreading a little joy everywhere she goes…  Irene Heathcote is just wonderful.

Her skill in arts and crafts earned her the high accolade of British Empire Medal and her story inspires me every time I listen to her.

I hope you will join us next week for the next instalment of the podcast series.
