Terry Waite Returns To Cheshire
Terry Waite is returning to Macclesfield to give a talk at East Cheshire Hospice's fund-raising art fair.
Mr Waite, who was born in Bollington, was an envoy for the Church of England in the 1980s. He travelled to Lebanon to try to secure the release of four hostages, including the journalist John McCarthy. He was himself kidnapped and held captive from 1987 to 1991.
He is president of the charity Y Care International (the YMCA's international development and relief agency) and patron of AbleChildAfrica and Habitat for Humanity Great Britain. He is also president of Emmaus UK, a charity for formerly homeless people.
The talk will give a fascinating insight to those troubled times in Lebanon and the difficulties Mr Waite and Mr McCarthy went through in their captivity. If you can support East Cheshire Hospice's art fair, this is a great way to do it.
