Author Angie Langley raises Funds for our Hospice Through Her Latest Books

June 2021

Author Angie Langley is donating £1 from every book sale she makes to our hospice, following her husband Brain being supported by our Hospice at Home service last year.

Angie’s books are based on her true-life experiences inspired by the highs and lows of a distant past that has given her the strength to tackle each day with a smile.

 

Angie picks up the story:

After receiving incredible support from the Salisbury Hospice at Home team back in March 2020 when her husband Brian was suffering with pancreatic cancer, local author Angie Langley has now pledged to donate funds from future sales of her popular ‘Jennifer Brown’ books. Angie explains “Not only was it heartbreaking to deal with my husband’s illness, but suddenly I had to contend with the many Covid restrictions which were hastily being put into place at that time. The Hospice At Home nurses were truly amazing and despite the incredibly stringent and clinical backdrop of the strict Government legislation they brought compassion and care into my home and helped Brian maintain a certain dignity during the final weeks of his life.

You never notice how much space someone fills in your life until the space is empty. Brian died on 21st March, two days before the first national lockdown. Sadly Covid took away my right to say a final goodbye, denied him a funeral and even prevented me from grieving with my family and friends, leaving me to cope alone.

During those dark days, I needed a distraction desperately, so I took a deep breath and launched myself into writing the final book in the Jennifer Brown series. It wasn’t easy, my emotions were raw, but like my heroine Jennifer who champions the importance of self-belief, I was determined to finish it.

Perseverance and discipline together with buckets of tears and long nights spent at my laptop, knowing that Brian would be cheering me on, Jennifer Brown To The Manner Born was finally finished. Now I am hoping along with my two previous books, Jennifer Brown’s Journey & Jennifer Brown Moving On, my story will bring laughter to others who may have gone through a similar experience as I did losing a loved one during lockdown.
