We’re almost at 2,000 books!
The last two weeks have been very exciting. The children from Caerleon School, Newport gave over 200 books and kindly donated their pocket money – an amazing £100 towards the appeal. A really big thanks to teacher Suzanne Price (previous Book Bus volunteer) and the delightful children – it was a real pleasure to meet them.
We visited The Book Barn, Hallatrow www.bookbarninternational.co.uk which was an extraordinary experience; the UK’s largest second-hand bookshop, wall to ceiling, stacks and stacks and stacks! The owners have agreed a donation which is going to boost the numbers! On Wednesday 1st June we’ll be holding a children’s storytelling event from 11 – 12.30 and painting a mural in the Book Barn café in the afternoon. Join us if you’re near!
The deadline for the shipment is drawing nearer, 1st July. Any support given will make a difference. Almost half way and time is ticking.
I need your help people! 3,000 to go – whoop-whoop!
