Sujue-Hands-over-Abbey-Road-(2)On March 13, 2014, the Montserrat National Trust museum became the permanent home of a hardback  of the book, “Abbey Road”, donated by the fundraising committee of Sujue Davis drive to support nonprofit and charitable organisations, such as the Red Cross on Montserrat.

The Book

The book written by George Martin founder and owner of the Air Studios now closed since the hurricane Hugo and the ensuing crisis of the 1995 volcanic activity  On November 24, 2012 and January 12, 2013 Mrs. Sujue Davis raised $34,669 in a fundraising to purchase AED machines. The book was intended to be auctioned at one of the events, as she described at the handover of the book to the museum, “ John McLoughlin, John Nunn and others, (members of her committee), they said the book that was donated by George Martin two months earlier should not be used as auction prize. The two gentlemen came out with the best idea of going to ask people if they were prepared to donate $200 (two hundred dollars) per family towards this book.”

That was done and after all families who had donated, their names were inscribed in the book, with a dedication by George Martin. A large sum of money was raised as a result and they agreed that it should donated to “our beloved museum.”

Mrs Davis said she will write to the people or the families, “who have donated towards this book which will be permanently on display at the national trust museum. They may come to view the book but unfortunately the book has to stay it cannot be taken out,” she said.

She advised that there is a replica at the Library as a reference book where it can be reviewed, and it is also available on eBay.

The Executive Director of the museum (National Trust) Sarita Francis as the book was placed for display, on behalf of the Trust thanked Mrs. Davis and the two Johns who were on hand for the presentation.
