International Give a Book Day: Thanks to everyone who helped us give books for Children!

International Give a Book Day fell on 14 February this year. And despite the possibility of being distracted by Valentine’s Day, our customers funded 50 volumes for us to give children through our foodbank project!

We offered a choice of three books, aimed at different age groups. Thanks to an arrangement with our distributor, we can buy two copies of each book for the price of one!

We’ll be giving 18 copies each of Children of Blood and Bone and Winnie and Wilbur: The Naughty Knight, and 14 copies of Who Killed Darius Drake? – a total of 50 books, to provide hours of enjoyment for children in need.

Thank you, everyone who supported Prospero’s Project by giving books – what a great way to mark International Give a Book Day!

 

Printing at Kings Academy, Ringmer

We took a little time from setting up our new operations to bring our trusty Adana Press to the Kings Academy in Ringmer.

Prospero’s Project – the social enterprise arm of Much Ado – has been supporting the library there with donations of books. And they kindly invited us to meet some students and lead a printing project – who could resist? We set some words suitable for Valentine’s Day (can you guess what four-letter word might have figured largely?), and let the kids print cards for the occasion.

We also took along rubber stamps, so they could decorate the cards.

A great time was had by all! Hope we can go back soon . . .
