Local MP to attend 'Books 4 Tanzania' charity meeting

January 30, 2008 3:00 PM

This Friday local MP Tim Farron will be attending a meeting of the charity Books 4 Tanzania, and will be listening to a talk by a Tanzanian PhD student. Books 4 Tanzania is a small independent charity organisation who obtain books from a variety of sources before sending them to Tanzania, where the books help to fill libraries, especially in schools and teacher training colleges.

Tim Farron said:

"This charity does fantastic work providing books which would otherwise be unavailable to rural communities in Tanzania, helping to enhance literary levels and give children a brighter future. I am very much looking forwards to meeting the people behind this wonderful project, as well as listening to the talk by the Tanzanian student."

"Books 4 Tanzania cannot continue their work without our help, so please get in touch or visit their website and give generously to help young Tanzanian children. After consulting with my children, we're donating some Ladybird books to the cause - hopefully the children in Tanzania will find them a good read!"
