Destination Devon

We are Target Who and this month has seen a scattering of schools across Devon pinned on our Target Who Project Map.  We have three very special people to thank for this progress.

The first person is the wonderful Jeni Jones, a Senior Manager at Hays. I first contacted her late last year while seeking help to reach schools in the South West of the UK.   She enthusiastically agreed to help our project and arranged help in six offices. The two southernmost, Exeter and Plymouth were both areas we had been unable to reach so far.  Getting books to them therefore became out first priority.. 

The second person to thank is the fabulous Tim Ledger.  Tim is Andrew’s Uncle and, hearing we needed help to reach Exeter, he quickly volunteered to help.  Andrew boxed up the books into small bundles and Tim transported them from Hampshire to the Exeter office.  The books for the Plymouth office were also left with Exeter staff and Plymouth staff will be collecting them soon.  Keep an eye out for pins appearing there and in Cornish schools in the near future.

Finally we need to thank the awesome Sarah Blazey of the Exeter office who has been contacting schools and taking the books to their final destinations.  We have been receiving a small flurry of thank you emails from school around Devon and it is lovely to hear how appreciated the books are.

We are Target Who.  We have now placed over 7,000 free books into school libraries and we haven’t finished yet!

Target Who would like to thank Jeni Jones, Tim Ledger and Sarah Blazey
