Hi All,

My name is Alice-Amanda Kay, and I am the meeting secretary for Clydesdale Astronomical Society, and we are raising funds for Macmillan Nurses in Scotland in memory of our Hon President John Braithwaite who sadly passed away last February from cancer. On the 11th March we are holding our second John Braithwaite Memorial Lecture, in The Bank Hall, Climpy Road, Forth, Lanark, Scotland, ML118BX, at 7.30 pm. Non-members £2. I know the meeting will not be one that most of you will be able to attend because of the distance. We also set up a just giving page to raise money as well, so if you know anyone who would like to donate to that we'd be most grateful. On behalf of our society and John's family, thank you. John was the last independent telescope maker in Scotland, an inventor, scientist and genius. He was a kind and generous soul, that would do anything for anyone without a second thought, so if you could in some small way give to our just giving page, that would be great. :D

Very Best Wishes
Alice-Amanda Kay (meeting secretary/publicity officer for CAS)
