Author Camilla Chester Wows STAGS Rotary Interact Club With Her Words



Children’s author Camilla Chester visited STAGS Rotary Interact group on Wednesday 1 February as part of the Rotarians National Centenary Celebrations. Along with other local celebrities around the UK, Camilla was asked to make her own artistic statement, by decorating a model figure of Gromit which she kindly donated to the club. In May 2017 all specially decorated Gromits and Shaun the Sheep models will be sold at auction on line to raise money for a children’s home in Bristol .

Camilla’s model of the famous dog delighted members of the STAGS Rotary Club. They were very happy to introduce him to their own Gromit which they recently decorated with club members coloured finger prints. The author said, “I chose to decorate my Gromit by covering him in ‘wow’ words that jumped out at me from the pages of my latest book. Jarred dreams.” She went on to say, “He has become like a member of the family, I shall miss him.” Camilla’s debut novel entitled ‘Jarred Dreams’ was shortlisted in the 2015 for the NLT new authors prize. Her second book ‘EATS’ will be published later this spring. A third book is also planned for 2018 entitled ‘Thirteenth wish’.

STAGS community would like to sincerely thank Camilla for coming to help our Rotary Interact Club and support this worthy charitable cause. We very much look forward to her return visit which will be on Monday 27 February at the start of World Book Week.

The entertaining stages of the crafty process in which Camilla documents the decorating of her celebrity Gromit is covered in her blogspot and it mentions STAGS –
