The Famous Rainbow Recipe Book, cookbook with eighty-eight recipes from British celebrities (see list), compiled by Tony Head and Sarah Fisher to benefit the Rainbow Centre, "in celebration of the life of Erin Palmer Lund." Ashgrove Press, ISBN 1-85398-076-5, 1995, paperback, 128 pages.

Description (from book): "Erin Palmer Lund died on 15th June 1994. She was three years old and had been fighting cancer for two years. Shortly after Erin's cancer was diagnosed, her mother, Cynthia, was put in contact with families faced with the prospect of losing a child. The Centre offers Counselling, Homoeopathy, Aromatherapy, and much needed support but as a charitable organisation is desperately under-funded. In Erin's memory we are assisting the Rainbow Centre with its fundraising, so that it can continue with its vital work. Erin has changed our lives. Please help us to help others by keeping The Rainbow Centre open. -- Tony Head and Sarah Fisher."

    "The Rainbow Centre, which helps families of children who have died or are suffering from a life-threatening illness, is desperately short of funds. In memory of Erin, Tony Head and his girlfriend Sarah Fisher have compiled The Famous Rainbow Recipe Book (4.99, Ashgrove Press, Bath), containing dishes by celebrities. Donations to the Rainbow Centre can be sent to PO Box 604, Bristol BS99 1SW." (
