Thank you from Philip Barclay author of

‘Zimbabwe: Years of Hope and Despair’

Thursday 14th October -

A hugely successful and interesting afternoon with Philip Barclay reading from his book ‘Zimbabwe Years of Hope and Despair’

The following is from Philip

I was deeply impressed by – and grateful for – the interest of the audience and its engagement in our discussion. The organisation, publicity, venue and presence of such a community of people supporting Zimbabweans in the UK was wonderful…….  I really hope that everyone who is planning to read my book appreciates it. Needless to say I would be grateful for any feedback or comments from you or your colleagues.
Thank you once again. You are very kind.

Philip Barclay

Thanks to all those in Leicester for their hard work in preparing for and running this great event!
