Lord Gawain Douglas will recite Tennyson’s Morte d’Arthur live on Facebook as a way of connecting with others but also to raise money for Catching Lives.
On 23rd May at 5pm you can log onto The Lighthouse’s page to listen:
Morte d’Arthur by Tennyson is a poetic masterpiece of the Victorian era, very relevant to our present very troubled times. It speaks of betrayal, loyalty heroism and the Armageddon of the early Middle Ages.
King Arthur’s court and his round table of heroic knights are destroyed,
but a powerful message of hope, renewal and faith arises at the end of the poem.
Lord Douglas says: “I’ve chosen catching Lives because it is a small, independent, Canterbury based charity and, especially now, in great need of any assistance. I connect with its vision of a society where all are included, and all, no matter how disadvantaged, can make a contribution. It has a great ethos of inclusivity”.
We send our thanks to Lord Douglas for choosing to fundraise for us and hope you will be able to tune in to this unique fundraising event on the 23rd May.
