Autumn's Here!

Just a few lovely Autumnal photos Hazel took whilst on her travels through Little Shelford today.
Believe in yourself, your neighbors, your work, your ultimate attainment of more complete happiness. It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in Autumn.
- B. C. Forbes

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

Cambridge Cancer Help Centre - The David Rayner Building

Hazel was lucky enough to spend an afternoon yesterday, helping out at a bit of a do, for the Cambridge Cancer help Centre. She was invited to help dispense drinks from the bar for the opening of the David Rayner Building which has been 18 months in the making. It was officially opened by none other than the Duchess of Gloucester.

Everyone who helped to make the project a success, whether donating time, money or materials attended and even those who attend the centre currently. Everyone was so proud of what has been achieved in such a short space of time and incredibly awed by the work of the centre itself, which continues to provide support for those suffering from cancer and other terminal illnesses.

Anyone who has suffered through such a terrible illness as cancer, or their families and loved ones, can appreciate what a great need there is for centres such as this. If only more people could have the vision and courage to go ahead with these kinds of projects. Those which bring together the whole community, as is the case here, then perhaps we would not be without hope in the face of such struggles.
