New Book on the life of Hefina Headon – ‘Mrs Hellfire - You Said It!’ by Jayne D Headon

Hefina was part of the backbone of the Neath, Dulais & Swansea Valleys Miners Support Group in 1984/85 and in life, a force of nature. For those who have seen the film Pride, her character is portrayed by the wonderful Imelda Staunton.

Her daughter Jayne has written a book that explores Hefina’s life through memories from friends and family members and photographs throughout her life. Hefina died on 5 October 2013, aged 83. Her death was just days before filming of the Pride scenes in Wales were due to start.

Those that knew or met Hefina will testify just how accurately Imelda Staunton's performance captures her strength of spirit and lust for life. For those who didn't meet her, here is your opportunity to find out what a fantastic woman she was.

Jayne‘s book Mrs Hellfire - You Said It! is available for £17.98 (£14.99 + £2.99 p&p). Orders to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
