ACTRESS turned author Davinia Taylor enjoyed an afternoon in Liverpool on Friday to celebrate the success of her top selling book ‘It’s Not a Diet’.
More than 80 people attended a book launch event at The Watering Can, Greenbank Park, where Davinia chronicled her journey from being overweight, depressed, and unmotivated to a picture of health and happiness.
She opened up about her journey from her wild days in London as part of the Primrose Hill set, to the content wife and mother of four.
Lunch was followed by a wellness talk from Davinia who also answered guests’ questions, before DJ Dave Seed rounded the afternoon off with a set of dancefloor filling classics.
The event, organised by Carolyn Hughes PR, in association with legal firm Astraea Linskills and The Watering Can also raised more than £1,000 for Love Wavertree’s Food Club.
Carolyn Hughes said: “It was one of the most fun and informative events I have had the privilege of being involved with. Davinia is an inspirational, knowledgeable speaker with a wicked sense of humour and an honesty that is truly humbling.
“She is hugely respected in the world of wellness, and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her”.
Davinia said: “I have loved every second, meeting up with mates and had a great time. A fantastic lunch with wonderful people, It’s great to be back up north!”
Founding Director of Astraea Linskills, Nama Zarroug added: “We are delighted to have been part of such an inspirational event. The team at ‘Love Wavertree’ are absolutely thrilled with the funds raised to support their ongoing Food Club and it was fantastic to host the event at The Watering Can and support the local community in the process”.
