connieConnie came to this country as a youngster and – during her foreshortened life – made a remarkable contribution to the life of Birmingham and Solihull. Her professional work in the city’s Margaret Street Education Department brought many challenges, recently assisting Somali children to settle well in local schools, and much of her own time was spent in voluntary service.

Her voluntary activities included serving as a justice of the peace, as the trustee and secretary of Solihull Lodge Community Centre and as an active fundraiser for Breakthrough, the breast cancer charity as recorded in the Birmingham Post and Mail.

Her warm, vivacious personality won her a host of friends and many of them will be attending a fundraising Breakthrough concert at Solihull Lodge Community Centre on Saturday 28th of September, 7.30pm for 8.

Readers – many of whom will have lost a friend or relative to cancer – are welcome to join Connie’s family, friends and colleagues at this event.


Tickets (£3) are being sold beforehand as seating is limited to 120.
