Felixstowe RSPCA volunteer raises funds with self-penned children’s books
7/02/2019 - RSPCA
An RSPCA volunteer has put pen to paper to write two children’s books to raise some much-needed funds for the Felixstowe branch.
Helen Lakey, a long-term volunteer at the RSPCA Felixstowe Charity Shop, has written two books and all the royalties will be donated to the RSPCA along with the gift aid.
The two books are written for children and are available on Amazon.
The first book is called ‘PLOP! The Boy who saved The World’ and although it is a children’s story it has a message for all of us. The book follows the journey of a young superhero learning about and wanting to save to the planet we live on. He harnesses the power of the internet to create a global wave of goodwill for his cause. Inspired by Felixstowe’s famous beach, It is a thought-provoking story of our times and is both funny and tear-jerking.
The second book, ‘The Trainees go West’, is also a children’s book featuring the Little Train that runs along the Felixstowe Prom. With Ray N. Bow at the controls, it takes four children on a magical journey to Joshua Tree and The Heblux where the Celestial Light Orchestra plays. The title will also be published as an ebook on Amazon, it costs just 99p.
A spokesperson for the branch said: “We are so very grateful to Helen for donating all the proceeds from these wonderful books to the RSPCA. They are truly delightful books and we hope many families will enjoy them. Each year we have the challenge of finding new ways to raise funds, so this offer is a wonderful donation for us and the money raised will be for all the animals we help in East Suffolk.’’
