Calling all Bobites – Your chance to meet street cat author James Bowen

The best-selling author of A Street Cat Named Bob will be talking about how his feline friend transformed his life at a fundraising event at Hammersmith Town Hall.

Formerly homeless, James Bowen’s love for his cat inspired him to kick his drug addiction and turn his life around. He has since written eight children’s and adults’ books and has been the subject of an award-winning film.

James and Bob are holding the event on Friday 23 June to raise funds for the Barons Court Project. The charity in Talgarth Road, West Kensington, supports homeless people and people with mental health problems.

“James has been a great support to the Barons Court Project and our work, as he understands how we can make a difference,” said project manager Michael Angus.

“It will raise much needed funds for us, so we can continue to help those in most need across H&F.”

James will be answering questions submitted in advance. You can post them on the charity’s facebook page or tweet them @BaronsProject stating your name and ticket number.

The event will be hosted by former Radio 1 film critic Rhianna Dhillon. Guests will be treated to live music by band Burbank as they take their seats.

Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

Tickets cost £32.45.
