LETTER: Thanks for helping ActionAid

I SHOULD like to thank everyone who supported our last ActionAid book sale.

We made £70 towards our latest project, creating safer schools for children in Uganda.

It is estimated that more than two-thirds of Ugandan children fail to complete primary school.

Violence in the form of bullying and inappropriate touching is a main reason.

Girls are particularly likely to leave for these reasons.

Our next book sale will be February 23, in Hartlepool Central Library, between 10.30am and 3.30pm.

We still need books, DVDs, CDs and tombola prizes.

To donate please ring (01429) 236032.

Thank you again for your help.

Jennifer Kerridge,
