I was most fortunate to be invited to accompany Tina to this event. Gordon Brennan was the only other ECA person in attendance as unfortunately the 3 painters who had their work on site - including pal Deirdre McLeod had been left off the invite list! Chancellor HRH Princess Anne and J K Rowling were there. Valvona and Crolla eats were available all morning too. The centre was amazing and I was extremely touched by it all - the hope, the positive energy and amazing future for all those affected by the most horrendous diseases. Most particularly moving was the Recording room, which gave patients the possibility of tcontinuing to 'speak' with their own unique voices.
