Spreading Elizabeth's fame

Posted by Suze Appleton on Sunday, March 8, 2015 Under: Elizabeth Raffald
Well, I'm pleased to say that I've told a few more people about Elizabeth and this time it was to a group who had come to hear a talk about women of Manchester. I had gone because it had promised to include Elizabeth in the list but when I heard some incorrect information being given it was torture not to interrupt the speaker. I decided it was such a small part of her talk that I would tell her after the talk.However, fate intervened and when the speaker's powerpoint refused to continue I asked permission to correct the information she had given.

In an audience of about 50 people no one had heard of her before and certainly weren't aware of how much she had achieved. I tried to just correct the information but I could have carried on for the rest of the hour, especially when the presentation refused to come back. Bravo to Anne, however, she bravely finished the excellent talk of some of the many inspiring women of Manchester, past and present.
