SCHOOL­GIRLS’ BOOK RAISES FUNDS FOR PI­ETA HOUSE

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE 6th class girls of Con­nect Neigh­bour­hood Youth Project in Bal­ly­waltrim have pub­lished their first book - ‘Nib­ble’s Big Ad­ven­ture’.

It tells the story of a fish that is left out be­cause he looks dif­fer­ent. The mes­sage of the story is that be­ing dif­fer­ent is OK.

They held a launch last Thurs­day in Bal­ly­waltrim and sold over €170 worth of books, with more on or­der. Ev­ery penny raised is be­ing do­nated to Pi­eta House.

There will be readings dur­ing the week in the girls’ school. Sea Life have put in an or­der for some of the books, given the aquatic theme.

There was a great turnout at the book launch, which in­cluded sweets, drinks and a short pre­sen­ta­tion about the book. The bright and colour­ful book costs €6.

The young ladies have been work­ing on Nib­ble’s Big Ad­ven­ture for the past year.

Adam Burke of Con­nect BNYP said that he is im­mensely proud of the young au­thors.
