St Richard’s Hospice is inviting local people to attend a very special lunch event and hear the amazing story of Graham and Janet Walton and their sextuplets.
The Walton girls, when they were born in Liverpool in 1983, were the first surviving set of all female sextuplets and quickly became a media sensation. Many people will have wondered what it was like growing up in the spotlight, and indeed how their parents coped with six little ones.
Their father Graham will be joining St Richard’s Hospice’s guests for lunch at The Wood Norton on Wednesday 16th September. Following a delicious two course lunch with coffee, guests will be able to hear his unique talk about being a proud parent of sextuplet girls, now 32, full of hilarious anecdotes about his life with seven women.
Alison Parkes, Community Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said; “We are delighted to welcome Graham to our lunch event and are looking forward to hearing his inspiring tale of parenthood. He will be talking about how he and his wife Janet overcame the challenges of bringing up sextuplets and amusing stories about their unique family life. Places are limited for this event, so we would encourage people to secure their tickets to avoid disappointment.”
Tickets cost £30 each and are available from St Richard’s Hospice fundraising team on 01905 763963. Alternatively, tickets can be booked online at www.strichards.org.uk/event/Wood-Norton. The event is being kindly sponsored by King’s Hawford.
