On Saturday 6th July, talented poets and local residents gathered for the prize giving of the annual Ver Poets open competition. OLLIE had very kindly been selected to receive some of the proceeds from the event.
Helen, who is a trustee for The OLLIE Foundation, went along to the prize giving held at the Maltings Arts Theatre and was very impressed by the diversity, passion and talent that all the poets demonstrated. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and we were touched by how interested everyone was in finding out more about the work OLLIE does.
Ver Poets is a poetry group based in St Albans and has been running for 50 years. The group meet regularly to share their work and discuss upcoming ideas. We are very thankful to all who contributed to this event and to Ver Poets for choosing to support us!
