The delivery process begins!

Hello everyone,

It has taken a little longer than I anticipated to get through all the paperwork required to get your generous donations from your accounts, via Crowdfunder, to my account, and finally to the publishers.   I am delighted to say that I was able to complete the process today and all the books are now being loaded on to a lorry, and will be with me in the next 5-7 days - although with the weather forecast this week, I am expecting there may be delays.

I am so excited, and slightly nervous, to see how big a space over 2500 books takes up - especially given the size of this particular book, but I have done the maths and made the space, so I will post some pictures to show the results as soon as they arrive.

Thanks again to those of you who have not only supported the fundraising, but have also offered to help with local deliveries.  I will be in touch to agree the next steps very soon.

It's been so uplifting to see my idea reach this stage, and there will be a fair bit of "up-lifting" to come in the next few months if I am to get all the books into schools as spring arrives.  Exciting times!

Thanks again,

Jane x
