A book donation to UHCW Charity thanks to donation from local business and author
A local industrial equipment business has teamed up with a Coventry author to donate 200 copies of books celebrating the city to the children's ward at UHCW hospital.
Author, Aaron Ashmore is the owner of Etch & Pin who look to champion Coventry with various projects and products which celebrate the city including pin badges, the Coventry Sticker Album and more recently a series of children’s books.
Aaron said: “The response to the books has been amazing and I love to feel like I’m helping to keep Coventry’s history alive and to bang the drum about the history and culture of the city. I’m over the moon that we’ve been able to donate these books to our city’s young people.”
Richard Swaffield, Managing Director at Tooling Intelligence, said: “We are always looking to support local causes where we can - including donating defibrillators to SADS UK - and it was great to team up with Aaron to donate some of his amazing Coventry books to the children and siblings who are at the Children’s Ward.”
Rachael Ryan, Community & Events Fundraiser at UHCW Charity said: “We are so grateful to Aaron and Richard for this wonderful donation of books! These really will make a difference to our young patients, keeping them occupied during treatments or hospital stays. It’s donations like this that help us to make things better for our patients and their families.”
