Classically trained singer Emily Estelle and her mother Sue are hosting the concert in aid of Isabel Hospice at the family home in Much Hadham to honour the life of much-missed husband and father John Wetherall. Although we were unable to care for John at the very end of his life, he did attend our Living Well with Isabel hub at the St Barnabas Centre in Thorley earlier on in his illness. The outreach service offers therapy groups, sessions and courses deed to advise and support people to best cope with the consequences of a life-limiting or terminal diagnosis, whether that is cancer, heart or lung disease, neurological conditions or any other palliative illness.
John, a partner of Sworders for more than 50 years, was a lifelong fan of the stage and screen, and as a younger man had hoped to study at the world-famous Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts RADA and pursue an acting career. I was a member of Little Hadham Panto Group and Dad would help me learn my lines and practice how to deliver them. Even when I was performing in America he and Mum would fly out. She will be performing alongside concert pianist Marina Lieberman and singer and composer Stuart Matthew Price.
The Wetherall family have been long-term supporters of Isabel Hospice, even before John was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in Sue has helped organise dozens of local fundraisers over the past 20 years, helping to raise thousands of pounds for the Hospice. We had hoped the Hospice would be able to take over his care in his final weeks, but unfortunately time ran out and he never got to have the peaceful, dignified ending that everyone deserves.
That seems particularly poignant this year when so many people have been forced apart. There are so many people who will require that support, the Hospice will never not be needed and they have been a huge comfort and support to us. Towards the end, we knew our time with him was short, and we tried to make the most of every moment. He achieved a heck of a lot in life, which is why he was such an inspiration to me. He would absolutely love this concert and I know he will be with us in spirit. Gates open at 6. Bring your own picnic, drinks, chair and rugs.
