Donating 11,000 Books to School Libraries to support Children's Literacy

Wednesday, 23 April 2014

We’re back - and it’s about time!

We are Target Who and our mission continues. I have not been well enough to blog for many months due to ill health.  I suffered two detached retina’s, leaving me with little eyesight, although I should eventually make a full recovery following two further operations later this year.  The project has not been dormant over the last few months with lots of progress and the odd set back, all of which I will catch you up on over the next few weeks.  Most recently:

My family and I went to Barmouth in North Wales at the start of the Easter holidays.  At the last moment I squeezed a small box of books into the car, just in case I bumped into any school teachers while we were there!  It proved to be most fortunate as we discovered that the Welsh schools were still open, their holidays starting the week after our Gloucestershire ones.  My children jumped at the chance of making a few Target Who deliveries and in total we spread the box of books around fourteen schools.  We had the privilege of talking to some of the pupils in two of the schools and we left behind some very excited children all keen to immerse themselves in Doctor Who fiction over their Easter break!   

Also delivered were eight inspired donations that had been passed our way by a Doctor Who fan named Philip from Surrey. More of Philip’s books will be sent out to school libraries in the next few weeks.  Thanks for your support Philip.

Other members of the team have been busy delivering too and I’ll report on some of those later in the week. 

We are Target Who and we have lots of stories to share with you in the coming months.  Watch this space!
