Hennik Group sponsors ‘WW1 Books for Schools’ programme
I am delighted to announce that Hennik Group, one of the country’s foremost media, research and events organisations, have agreed to sponsor ten copies of ‘The Great War 100′ infographic books as part of my WW1 Books for Schools initiative.
The ten schools that they have chosen are all within spitting distance of London Waterloo – where they have their HQ:
- Brunswick Park Primary
- Charlotte Sharman Primary
- Crampton Primary
- Riverside Primary
- Robert Browning Primary
- St Peter’s CofE Primary
- Vauxhall Primary
- Victory Primary
- Wyvil Primary
- Walnut Tree Walk Primary
I continue to be amazed and humbled by the response from organisations regarding this WW1 books for schools project and I hope to have more announcements to make very soon. Today, however I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Nick Hussey and Henry Anson from Hennik Group for being so generous and supportive.

About WW1 Books for Schools
WW1 Books for Schools is an initiative I have set up to enable organisations to purchase a copy (or copies) of my ‘The Great War 100′ infographics book and donate it to a school of their choice.
If I could, I would buy every copy of the book from the publisher and give to schools, but my finances simply will not allow it. That said, I think with the centenary years upon us, we (and by ‘we’ I mean writers, authors, historians, the government, broadcasters, journalists, teachers, academics and parents) have a perfect window of opportunity to inspire and educate the younger generation into finding out more about this important part of our history. This is why I am asking organisations to sponsor a book (or books) for a school of their choice.
So far this little project has resulted in hundreds of schools up and down the country benefit from free copies of ‘The Great War 100’ for their school libraries and thousands of children now have access to the book for free – I hope that a few of them like the book, pick it up and have a flick through and perhaps learns a thing or two… that’s what this is all about!
If you would like to sponsor a book then please let me know!
