We were delighted that Lucy Ward joined us at Deadline Studios to record on the ‘Notes of Thanks’ single, lending her fantastic voice to the project song. In 2014 we set up the Community Interest Company; Develop Insite to continue rethinkyourmind and The Yellow Book work. Lucy has been part of The Yellow Book project since then, recording on songs, performing and speaking with us at events and writing the songs ‘It is a Place’ and ‘Mother Natures Daughter’ for the project inspired by selected poems.
In the last few years Lucy connected us with Professor Mark Fromhold at the University of Nottingham. Lucy is an integral part of the communication skills workshops Mark has set up for the School of Physics and Astronomy. Over the last 4 years Mark, Lucy and the students have created personalised Yellow Books from these workshops and we are delighted that they will be beginning the 4th Edition of The University of Nottingham Physics and Astronomy Yellow Book focussing on gratitude to link up with the national project ‘Notes of Thanks’.
Such a pleasure to work with them all. View the University of Nottingham resources here.
