Exmouth man helps write charity book

AN EXMOUTH man has helped pen work which appears in a new book released to raise funds for charity.

Bob Hunter is one of 36 authors whose work features in the title At Home with Words – a compilation of 72 short stories and poems.

The contributors have just completed a creative writing course with the Open University.

Although the authors found it exciting to see their work in print, their real motivation was to help raise funds for Cancer Research UK. All profits will go to the charity.

Material in the book has been collated by Esther Clark whose life changed dramatically three years ago when she underwent challenging treatment for breast cancer.

Soon afterwards, her husband was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma.

Esther met Bob and scores of other budding writers this year through the creative writing course. It was then that the idea of At Home with Words was born.
