I am delighted to announce that Huson International Media,  one of the foremost global lead generation, advertising and media organisations, have agreed to sponsor four copies of ‘The Great War 100′ infographic books as part of my WW1 Books for Schools initiative.

The four schools that will benefit from free WW1 books are:

  • Claremont Fan Court School, Esher
  • Parklands Primary School, Northampton
  • Kingsley Park Primary School, Northampton
  • Wordsworth Primary School, Southampton

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 Lauren Palmer from Huson International Media for being so generous and supportive.

About WW1 Books for Schools

WW1 Books for Schools is an initiative I have set up to enable as many school children as possible to have free access to the WW1 Infographic book ‘The Great War 100’.

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) to help schools.

So far this little project has resulted in several hundred schools up and down the country benefit from free copies of ‘The Great War 100’ for their school libraries and hundreds of 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!
