London bombing survivor Gill Hicks will tell her story in Murray Bridge

The author and motivational speaker will speak live with librarian Tim Law at Murray Bridge Town Hall next week.

Gill Hicks’ life changed forever on July 7, 2005.

She was riding a train on the London Underground when a terrorist bomb exploded only metres away from her, leaving her fighting for life.

Make no mistake, though – she won’t be remembered as a victim.

Since that fateful day, the Adelaide-born curator, author and motivational speaker has founded a charity called MAD for Peace, been named South Australian of the Year and made a Member of the Order of Australia.

She’ll tell her story in Murray Bridge next Wednesday, November 10.

Library team leader Tim Law will engage her in a conversation about her experiences, writings and outlook on life.

“Dr Gill Hicks is a true survivor and an inspiration,” he said.

“I’m really looking forward to hearing about her amazing journey, the insights she gained along the way and how some of those universal learnings can be applied in a post-COVID world, and in particular to life here in Murray Bridge.”

Expect a provoking, powerful, life-affirming hour, starting at 10am.

Admission to the event will be free, though reservations are recommended.
