International best-selling author, Simon Scarrow, becomes a patron of the Bansang Hospital Appeal
It is our pleasure to announce that author Simon Scarrow has become a patron of the Bansang Hospital Appeal. We are greatly appreciative of all his efforts in bringing the story of Bansang Hospital to the fore.
“The first time I was aware of the BHA was when BBC’s regional programme ‘Inside Out’ carried a feature on Anita and the vital support the hospital was offering to people in Gambia. It was impossible not to be inspired by the dedication of those involved and at the same time to be aware of the much greater efficiency of a charity with such a specific focus. Fortunately the BBC provided a link to the BHA and I was able to follow it up and make my first donation.
Since then I have been working on coming up with various ways to increase the cash flow and have arranged for my speaking fees to be paid directly to the BHA. In addition, my rather enterprising wife and sons have set up an online shop to sell signed first editions of each of my new books so that the profits from the sales can go to charity. I’m delighted to say that it has been a success and I am trying to convince other authors to set up something similar.
In between writing books I am hugely looking forward to getting more involved with the BHA.”
Thanks once again, Simon. We look forward to the future partnership, and to sharing with you the wonderful story of Bansang Hospital.
