Thanks for all the donations
After raising over Â£1,000 for the Percy Hedley Foundation with the '˜Sporty Poetry' JustGiving page, I'd like to thank everyone who donated.
A children’s book is to be published that hopes to raise even more for the charity.
Some of the proceeds from sales of the book will go to the Percy Hedley Foundation and two other North East charities - the North East Autism Society and The Sunshine Fund, as well as a charity in London.
The book, to be titled ‘Sam and her Sporty Friends’ is about a sport-loving girl and her pals and will be published in 2017.
