Remember... If you're not speaking It, you're storing It. "And That's A Heavy Load To Bear"
Eddie's ardent cause...
Since the year 2000, I have lived in the far east where I became the Founder of a registered charity, existing under the Royal Patronage of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand. I have also worked as a professional family entertainer and Lecturer at many top-class International schools, five-star hotels, prestigious gala events and TV appearances.
Just before the Pandemic hit the world in March 2020, I decided to visit my family back in the UK.
I am now living in my hometown of Bolton, near Manchester, having spent some time in Scotland where I also have a granddaughter. I am remotely directing a small team of staff and volunteers at the charity in Thailand, while gradually passing on the workload to a very competent volunteer Operations Director.
Now, in my 70th year, I am passionate about using my painfully acquired life experiences to help other victims of child abuse discover ways to survive and thrive. I can only do this by presenting the award winning Film "That Fat Bloke from Bolton" and my book, "One Night in Shanghai".
I plan to give free Lectures and helpful advice on surviving the devastating consequences of child abuse at venues throughout the UK. There, I can use my extensive knowledge and experience to teach victims how to become survivors.
However, since my return to the UK, I have used up my entire life savings; I have no private pensions and have become totally reliant on the standard minimum British state pension, plus my means-tested social housing benefits.
Please support my cause by donating whatever you can afford to help cover travel/accommodation and booking venues costs...
Adult survivors of abuse... “Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our life.” You cannot run away from any child abuse you suffered. But you must remember... IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT! "And it is not Impossible to live a meaningful life even with the memories of what happened to you"
