Charity Calendar for 2019

Friends Calendar 2019 Front Cover

For the past few years Peter Sheldon, now retired from active bookselling service, has been working with illustrator friends, at their request, to produce a calendar for charity. Each year they generously provide him with original artwork, and Peter, wearing his art director hat, puts the months together, arranges printing, encourages sales, and finds help with the distribution.

The charity in question for the past three years has been Clare and Michael Morpurgo's Farms for City Children, and a front cover image of next year's calendar is shown, with each illustrator's artwork featured, apart from the full Tony Ross 'cleric' illustration, which aims to surprise and reveal more in the month of January! If you would like to support the venture and buy in to the project - and our fingers remain crossed - please do contact our wonderful distributor, Anne Marley anne.marley[at]tiscali.co.uk quoting the code SLA and Anne will be pleased to collect monies and arrange for copies to be supplied. 

The Friends Calendar costs £7.95 each, which includes post and packaging, and could be perfect for that elusive Christmas present.

The 2019 talented team features Quentin Blake, Tony Ross, Jane Ray, David McKee, Ruth Brown, Michael Foreman, Catherine Anholt, Arthur Robins, Colin McNaughton, Mary McQuillan, Colin Hawkins, Hanne Bartholin and Shoo Rayner. There's plenty of room to write up your daily appointments, and it even boasts a generous helping of wit and humour!

All profits go to the FFCC charity to support the running of their three farms in Devon, Gloucestershire and Pembrokeshire. The farms give children from inner city schools the unique opportunity to live and work together for a week at a time on a real farm in the heart of the countryside.

We do hope you have been tempted, and look forward to hearing from you.
