And the winner is.......

It has been an amazing weekend. The press picked up on the success of our project (full page in Saturday's Guardian!) and the messages of support have been flooding in.  By contributing to this project you have ensured every school in Scotland will receive this wonderful book, but you have also inspired many more people to donate to their local school or to set up similar fundraising projects for their regions.  It is just amazing to see the momemtum building and it has generated so much positivity - and that is before I even get to deliver the books to the kids in schools.....cant wait!

The other good news is that by donating to the project each of you were entered into the draw to win this stunning painting by Jackie Morris. 

I used an online random number generator to select a winner and I am delighted to announce that the winner is SARAH AITKEN. Congratulations Sarah, I will email you directly to arrange delivery.

Thanks again to all of you for making this possible.  I will continue to send you emails (no more than once a week) with updates on progress as I take delivery of the books and start sharing them around the country. If you do not wish to receive emails then please simply click reply at any time and ask me to remove you from the list. 

If you live in Scotland, have strong arms and a spare wheelbarrow you are more than welcome to help with deliveries.....just email me and I will be in touch.

It's been amazing.

Thanks again,

Jane x
