PD James

27 Nov 2014 / Chief Executive

Everyone at Arvon is very sad to hear of the death of PD James. She was one of our most supportive and stalwart Patrons whose engagement with Arvon made a huge difference to us. Her active involvement in two of our fundraising events is legendary. She was extremely generous in allowing us to use her work.  And her playfulness came to the fore when in the second show, Belle Epoque, a sleuthing comedy she wrote with Simon Brett, she played a cameo role alongside Jerry Hall.

 

All our thoughts are with her family.
