Lives & Times Bowel Cancer Charity Book On Sale at Book Bean & Ice Cream in Kirkham
I am happy to announce that the paperback edition of the Lives & Times book is currently available to buy at the Book Bean & Ice Cream shop in Poulton Street, Kirkham near Preston. I was contacted by its owner Elaine Silverwood who was really keen to get involved. Elaine very generously ordered 10 copies of the paperback edition of the book and paid up front, so this money has already been donated to Beating Bowel Cancer. For anyone who lives in Preston / Blackpool area and wants to get hold of the book, this is a great way to get hold of a copy and support your local independent bookshop at the same time. Elaine has sent me this great photo of the book on display in the shop.
Elaine previously ran the shop as Silverdell Books before selling it last October. Elaine has recently taken it on again under the new name of Book Bean & Ice Cream and is building it back up again, so it is well worth supporting. Elaine also runs Silverwood Events which takes children's authors around schools in the North West as well as hosting unusual author and illustrator events.
The Lives & Times book, and now screen prints, have so far raised almost £2400 for Beating Bowel Cancer. My mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2012, fought a long and brave battle, but sadly passed away on August 29th. Please support the book and help raise funds and also awareness about bowel cancer.
