Sir George Martin supports Sujue Davis’ MRC fund raising drive

Sir-George-Martin-Book-Presentation-Reception-(2)Sir George and Lady Judy Martin in a most generous gesture decided to support Mrs. Sujue Davis, His Excellency the Governor’s wife in a fund raising drive to acquire  automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for the Montserrat Red Cross branch.

Mrs. Davis hosted a variety show, a silent and live auction which was held on  Saturday, November 26, 2012 at the Governor’s residence in Woodlands, toward the fund raising cause raising over $27,000.00.

On Saturday, January 12, 2013, Sir George & Lady Judy Martin at a reception hosted by Mrs. Davis, presented a book he donated to the cause of the initiative on behalf of the Red Cross. The book on “the History of Abbey Road Studios”, is an illustrated book depicting artists from Von Karajan to Paul McCartney. It weighs 3.5 kilogrammes and it needs a strong coffee table to bear its weight. Its retail price is £250.

Mrs. Davis said initially she was going to auction the book to raise further funds for the MRC Patron Community Projects, but, “…but there was a consensus that the book should remain in Montserrat for collective use.”

At the reception the Governor in an introduction of the Martins running over their history and long connection with Montserrat and the famous Air Studios, explained that contributors numbering 40, announcing some names, each pledged $200.00 to keep the book in Montserrat. “This was far more than the list price and probably far more than we would have achieved at an auction,” Mrs. Davis had noted.

Governor Davis added that initially the book will be kept at Government House, but contributors will be allowed to borrow it upon reservation. Sir George signed the book in recognition of the contributors.

Following remarks by the Governor at the reception, Sir George gave brief remarks as he explained the origin of the book and the history behind it.
