Fish Fingers, Custard and Kiwi’s

We are Target Who and friends and family have played a big part in sending our books long distances.

Over in New Zealand my friends Steve and Louise Roebuck had been following the adventure of Target Who via my Facebook statuses.  This summer they came back to the UK for a visit and were only too pleased to take books back with them and find two worthy schools to donate them too.

The first set went to St Joseph's Catholic Primary School in Takapuna and we are grateful to the Moss family for delivering them to the school for us.  I love how they wear hats as part of their school uniform - The Eleventh Doctor would be impressed!

The Second set was donated to Puketapu School in Hawkes Bay.  Louise told us:
“It is one of the oldest schools in Hawkes Bay, established in 1864 and have just recently had a brand new library built so they were very pleased with the donation of books.”

Then we heard off Kamo Intermediate School.  One of their teachers had spotted mention of Target Who over Facebook thanks to Andrew’s Cousin, Christina Ledger.  As Christina was about to travel over to New Zealand she happily took a set with her and delivered it to them along with some fish fingers and custard to celebrate!

 We heard back from Kamo that told us:

“Thought you might like to see how we enjoy Fish Fingers and Custard in New Zealand. A HUGE thank you from Kamo Intermediate School pupils for the books you sent around the world with the wonderful Christina. We hope you enjoyed your day at the beach Christina, and thank you sooooo much for bringing the culinary treat!”

We are Target Who and our books are delighting children half a world away.

Target Who would like to thank Stephen Roebuck, Louise Roebuck, Orla Moss, Aoife Moss, Leo Moss and Christina Ledger
