“Born in Scotland during the great depression and abandoned on the cold doorstep of a heartless man, the odds were against baby Sheila from the beginning. Merely surviving her brutal circumstances would never be enough for her, instead she developed the incredible courage and tenacity required to overcome the horrors she suffered.

Told by her daughter Pamela with unflinching honesty, Sheila's unforgettable story will make you cry but it will also make you laugh, leaving you uplifted.”

Wine, soft drink and nibbles provided.

Door prize to win a copy of ‘Sheila’

Opportunity to purchase or get your own copy signed by Pamela. $20 each, cash preferred but card available.
