My Barefoot fundraiser for the Teenage Cancer Trust

As an ambassador for Barefoot Books ( Deborah Giannasi at Barefoot Books) I am very keen to support as many charities as I can, especially those that are close to my heart. Through online fundraisers and events, I can sell books and give a little back whilst happy readers can enjoy their new Barefoot Book. Starting this month, I am very happy to be supporting a local fundraiser who is raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust,  Leanne Salisbury is raising funds with Help a Capital Child's Great Wall of China Trek. In March 2013 she will be giving her all to walk the great wall of China, whilst raising as much money as possible. Leanne wants to raise money as;

'TCT is devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer by providing dedicated units so that they can be treated together, by age appropriate specialist in an environment tailored to them. Young adults tend to develop the most rare and aggressive cancers due to their rapidly changing bodies so they also provide training for specialists to ensure an age specific approach '

To help Leanne with her fundraising you can buy one of four wonderful Barefoot Books and for every book bought £1 will be donated to her charity. Leanne has chosen two of our books set in China, to keep in theme with her trek, and due to her love of words and stars has chosen books that show off a little of Leanne's personality. Whether you want to buy a book for your little one or treat family and friends for Christmas, take a look at Leanne's choices and click on the link at the bottom of the page to place your order.
