Donating a couple of signed crime novels to help raise funds for Read for RNIB Day

When the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) called upon authors to donate one of their novels to help raise funds for Read for RNIB Day I was delighted to help with the donation of two DI Andy Horton Marine Mystery crime novels; Dead Man's Wharf and Blood on the Sand.

The RNIB has created Read for RNIB Day in October to support the almost two million adults and children who are blind or partially sighted. They are raising funds to help provide reading services and support to people with sight loss across the UK.

As part of their fundraising activity, they are asking authors to donate a book which they plan to sell in their pop-up or on-line bookshop to help raise much needed funds. It costs around £2,500 to provide a lifeline to someone with sight loss by recording an RNIB Talking Book; this investment opens up a world of reading and helps to end the isolation of sight loss.

If any authors  reading this would like to donate a signed copy of  their novels please send to the address below. 

Read for RNIB Day 2012.
