Event Description

‘Great Little Libraries’ ( http://www.greatlittlelibraries.co.uk/ ) is a Scottish charity (SC039321) which raises money to put books in primary schools in disadvantaged parts of Scotland. As an author of children's books, it is perhaps not surprising that I would view 'Great Little Libraries' as an extremely worthwhile cause.

The importance of providing books to kids who might otherwise not have access to them cannot be over-stressed. Books provide education, enlightenment, entertainment and escape. And, if my example is anything to go by, an amazing aptitude for alliterative assertion. By donating to Great Little Libraries you will be personally enhancing the lives of children in Scotland. It is as simple as that.

In order to encourage you to part with your cash I will be competing in the 'Tour de Ben Nevis'; an endurance mountain bike race which is 70km long, has 1719 metres of ascent and is scattered with the dis-articulated skeletons of previous contestants who have tried - and failed - to meet the challenge. A tough proposition at any time, ten months after a hip replacement operation I will be lucky to get round without my leg falling off.

Any donation you wish to make - big, small or medium sized will be greatly appreciated by me, the charity and, most importantly, by the children who read the books you buy them.

Thanks,

Matt
