“I first came into contact with Lovatts Crosswords during a stay in hospital. I was then ten years old. I was taken to Dubbo to have my appendix out and was placed in the children’s ward. I was the oldest by about seven years.
“I was scared and I was all alone with no one to talk to and nothing to do. One of the nurses gave me a book of your crosswords. It took my mind off the hospital and I felt so much more relaxed and happy.

“I find that crosswords still get my mind off my problems and often after a crossword or two I can think a lot clearer too. Things just don’t seem as bad.
