A Norfolk author has released her tenth book, entitled Pact with Poetry, to raise funds for the People for Animal Care (PACT) Trust in Norwich.

Margaret Luckett has spent many years helping charities and self-help groups raise awareness and funds to enable them to continue helping others.

The author, who previously worked as a French interpreter for Bernard Mathews, the Turkey Tycoon, in the 1960s and in personnel management for an American Manufacturing Company in Norwich, became known for her poetry and skills with verse and has had poems featured in many publications worldwide.

Well known actor Graham Cole, who starred as PC Stamp in The Bill, has written the foreword to the poetry book.

Her main interest has been publishing independently, creating poetry books with an added theme for various charities, including the Caister Independent Lifeboat Service, Orthopaedic Research, Happisburgh Coast Watch, Walcott Flood Wardens (WEVA), Centre 81, Walcott Church and North Walsham Access Group, raising over £12,000 for the various charities.

The charity benefiting from her latest work is one of the largest sanctuaries and rescue care charities in the country. They give help and support to stressed, lost and injured animals in Norfolk and Suffolk– housing over 1,000 animals and birds all year round.

PACT has recently refurbished some of its charity shops– the latest one in Witard Road, Norwich and to celebrate she will be launching her new poetry book on October 2 at the Witard Road shop between 10am and midday.

She has also presented the PACT shop with her own hand knitted version of the ‘Scarecrow Family’ of dolls which will be raffled as first prize at the poetry book launch day at:-

She thanked all the companies that helped to sponsor her book.
