    Book details

Have you ever thought about helping other people not as fortunate as yourself? Well, that is exactly what 53 young 18–19 year olds mainly from the UK set out to do from 1960-70. Turn the clock forward 33 years and discover what is still going on today: A true story about the current on-going search for the remaining 7 / 53 Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) 18 year olds who worked in the schools of the small coastal communities of Labrador, Newfoundland, Canada 1960-70. The Year is 2002, how and why the search for the VSO came about: I was browsing the internet one day in 2002…trying to find a way to repay the great generosity of Margaret Burden, Mayor of Port Hope Simpson, Labrador, Newfoundland, Canada for having paid for my trip back out to the Town’s “Coming Home” celebrations in 2002. All this had come about because from 1969 – 70 I had worked as a VSO teacher at the Anglican School in Port Hope Simpson and then 32 years later, quite out-of-the-blue, had come this completely unexpected, fantastic invitation which I quite simply had to repay. (English/Chinese captions)

Llewelyn's collection of books includes the series:1. Illustrated Diaries about European Budget Short-Break Holidays2. Photo Albums 3. The Port Hope Simpson Diaries 1969-70 4. Port Hope Simpson Mysteries 5. The Voluntary Service Overseas in Labrador 6. Travel Handbooks Llewelyn has worked with The Honourable Canadian Senator William (Bill) Rompkey, on writing the history of the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) in Labrador. This is what Bill wrote in his letter to the first get- together of the VSO teachers at Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire 1-3 August 2003, "...Labrador called to you and we are calling you now. I hope you will do what you can during these few days to fill in the Labrador record with your recollections and reflections. This too will be an important contribution to Labrador history. But mainly I hope you enjoy your time together. Llewelyn Pritchard has done a remarkable job in bringing you together. He is as shrewd as Holmes and as persistent as Poirot. He could even be a great Canadian! We owe him more than we can say. It's his event and I know it will be successful. All good wishes. Bill Rompkey"
