Could you or your company sponsor a new vehicle for the
C. S. Lewis Tours that I run here in Oxford, England?
The minibus that I purchased several years ago
to do the C. S. Lewis Tour in Oxford is getting tired and
in need of replacing, in fact its nearly 10 years old!
I have personally funded the costs throughout.
If you or your company were able to provide
a new vehicle that would clearly advertise your name as a
sponsor of the C. S. Lewis Tours in Oxford, then I would dearly
love to hear from you. Capital purchase in the region of £30,000.00
I would also like to hear from anyone who could
sponsor the cost of the road fund licence, insurance and general
running costs. Current anticipated cost is £10,000.00
per annum. This does not include any remuneration for me and
of course I do have to survive, so it may be something else
that you might like to consider.
Perhaps vehicle manufacturers would care to
consider the benefits of association with the very personal
C. S. Lewis Tours that I offer here in Oxford, England. Why
personal? Quite simply I was there at the time and invited
into Lewis former home by my friend from schooldays
Lewis stepson, Douglas Gresham!
Please help me to secure the former home of
C. S. Lewis which I consider to be part of Britains
Christian heritage, in order to allow pilgrims the world over
to see just how brothers Jack and Warnie
lived in comparative squalor, and yet gave everything. Clive
Staples Lewis really was a giant among men but there isnt
even a plaque on the former home to inform visitors. No directions,
not even when you get to within 200 yards of the former home!
My personal view is that the former Lewis home should be made
a shrine and open to the public throughout the year. Further
there should be a Memorial plaque in Westminster Abbey, perhaps
in poets corner!
If you feel that you are able to help in any
way whatsoever, please do not hesitate to send an email to
to discuss the way forward.
With the release of the film The Lion,
the Witch and the Wardrobe in December 2005 from the
Chronicles of Narnia (co-produced by my former childhood friend
of the mid 1950s Douglas Gresham) in December 2005,
this unique opportunity could promote you and/or your company
to unimaginable heights.
If you are in any doubt about how visitors from
all over the world rate my C S Lewis Tours here in Oxford
then please go to Tour
Reviews to read what they have to say. Still
in doubt? Trace the guestbook message back to source.
I have also written a book called A Guide
to the C S Lewis Tour in Oxford due for release in October
2005 and expected to be available throughout the United Kingdom
shortly, although not available in the United States for some
6 9 months yet.
