Date: 5 September 2014

An event will be held on Saturday 13 September at the Cass to celebrate Gaynor Ithell's life, surrounded by an exhibition of her art. 

The event, on the second floor of Central House from 3pm to 5pm will allow Gaynor's friends and colleagues to meet and share memories of a remarkable lady over a drink or two and will include an opportunity to acquire a piece of Gaynor's work by means of a silent auction to raise funds for a good cause. In accordance with the wishes of Gaynor's Mum, Joyce, proceeds of the auction will be donated to The Walton Unit in Liverpool, where Gaynor was treated and cared for in the final weeks of her life.

The results of the silent auction will be announced at 1630. Please note: all successful bids must be paid for IN CASH and the relevant art work removed from CASS on Saturday 13th. We have no facilities to accept payment by cheque or cards. Receipts will be issued for all payments.

Please pass this on to anyone who may like to attend but, in order that we have an idea of numbers likely to attend and facilitate catering, please RSVP to this invitation by email to '', marking your email 'Gaynor Ithell - Saturday 13 September'.

We look forward to meeting you.
