Friday night saw around 90 people at a ticketed event at a beautiful private home. With great food and sensational wine, guests enjoyed a heartwarming welcome from Moira Kelly, Patron of Global Gardens. Mandy McCracken spoke about her “journey” through sepsis and having all 4 limbs amputated. She also spoke about how, when in hospital weeks after her surgery, Helen the nurse took her outside. After some pretty dark days, it was seeing the trees and a small finch which gave her the resolve and strength to continue on and find a new role and place in the world. Truly inspiring.

Here’s a short clip from Mandy’s talk.
