so long, lotte

Our beloved volunteer Lotte (Charlotte Ennis) unexpectedly died on 13 August. 

Lotte was a creative genius, witty, gifted and altogether a remarkable woman. A cake maker extraordinaire, she made the most exquisite cakes for Suited & Booted’s festivities. She was a great writer and the author of Suited & Booted’s thank you notes to our clothing donors.

Thank you, Lotte for being the finest support and giving us the gift of your time over the years. We will miss you so much.

And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed.’

Our thoughts and love are with Lotte’s mother Lucy, and sister Tanya.
