The Marist College (Lucy's old school) held a fundraiser on 15 August 2010. There is no confirmation of Lucy attending this event (the pics may turn up on the school's site or elsewhere at a later date)
Barbara Davies reports:
[No recent Lucy news to report, but I did come across this snippet about an event Lucy was scheduled to attend during August at her old school. Sounds a very genteel way to raise money for scholarships for needy pupils, doesn't it? <g> Haven't come across any reports yet of how the event went or how much was raised. ]
