Pirate Fun at Children's Hospice
Families staying at Rachel House tried out their pirate slang yesterday at a special preview of Merchiston Pubishing’s new book ‘Treasure Island: A Play’.
Rosie Howie from Merchiston Publishing, the in-house publishing arm of Edinburgh Napier University, visited the hospice to read extracts from the book. Accompanying Rosie was students Andrew Bianchi, Carol-Anne Royan, Kirstin Rhymer and Jamie Williams. Profits from the book which has been developed for Primary School level drama will be donated to CHAS. The book officially launches on Friday 8 June.
Rosie Howie said: “Lynn Brittney brings Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story to life in this fantastic children's play that the whole family can enjoy. We’re thrilled to be able to donate profits to CHAS.”
CHAS Fundraiser Amy Telford said: “Thank you to Merchiston Publishing for their support. It’s fantastic that Rosie was able to visit Rachel House to meet some of the families that we support and give us a sneak peak of the play.”
