World Book Day

Had a brilliant World Book Day, starting at the Oak Centre for Young People, which is part of the Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital and has wards run by the Teenage Cancer Trust. Was an absolute pleasure to meet some of the talented young people being treated there and talk books and ideas with them. This is me with Ella Hallpike who, like everyone at the Centre, does a brilliant, brilliant job.

After that it was on to Box Hill School, my old stomping ground for some workshops with Year 7 and 10 students, making up stories and enjoying their imaginations. Again, inspiring stuff. Many thanks there to Miss A, Ms B and Sam B – and everyone at the school, which is a great place in a lovely part of the country.
