Taking place between 6th and 12th March, Willen Hospice is asking supporters to hold a Big Blue Bash to raise funds for the charity. This could be anything from holding a coffee morning with friends to putting on a disco, holding a cake sale at the office to a sponsored fancy dress.Willen Hospice is also appealing for volunteers to help at one of the many bucket collection slots taking place across Blue Week.


The special week of fundraising activity looks to raise vital funds to support the end-of-life care provided

by Willen Hospice with events and bucket collections held by supporters throughout Milton Keynes.


Dawn Clark, Fundraising Manager at Willen Hospice, said ‘We just can’t wait for Blue Week 2017. Willen

Hospice needs to raise £3.6 million every year to continue to offer their specialist care – that works out

at around £7 every single minute and Blue Week is a great opportunity for the people of Milton Keynes to come together and support us in a really fun way.’


Anyone who would like help in holding their Big Blue Bash or would like to find out more about Blue Week can visit www.willen-hospice.org.uk/blueweek or call 01908 303057.

This book was researched by Duncan Hume, a member of Bletchley Heritage Initiative. His whole career was spent teaching at Leon School, and retirement gave time to access admissions registers and logbooks including those of the predecessor schools, dating back to 1870.


Former staff and student stories, alongside newspaper reports and other documents, helped to create an account of the schools and the wider Bletchley Community, including links with Bletchley Park and the Leon family.


Grace Hume joined her husband in completing the research and writing this account, having also taught at the school in the early eighties, and then from 2001.


The book can be ordered online from: www.livingarchive.org.uk or bought for £10 from:

- Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council Offices, 76 Queensway, Bletchley

- Spotlight on Bletchley Office, 114 Serpentine Court, Bletchley

- Milton Keynes Museum Bookshop, McConnell Drive, Wolverton
