In­de­pen­dent’s vow to back book­shop

Yorkshire Post - - EDUCATION ON MONDAY -

AN IN­DE­PEN­DENT school in Har­ro­gate has pledged to sup­port an in­de­pen­dent book­shop in the town, re­fresh­ing two of its li­braries with hun­dreds of books pur­chased from the re­tailer.

Last sum­mer, the Imag­ined Things Book­shop made na­tional head­lines when owner Ge­or­gia Duffy fa­mously tweeted that on one day she had taken just £12.34 all day.

Now Ashville Col­lege has pledged to sup­port it.

“Ashville has been in ex­is­tence for more than 140 years, but that would not have been pos­si­ble had it not been for the sup­port of par­ents lo­cally, na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally,” said head­mas­ter Richard Mar­shall, adding that fund­ing had come from an ap­peal to mark the school’s an­niver­sary, buy­ing more than 200 books. “In turn, we will be giv­ing the books they have re­placed to a num­ber of schools in Har­ro­gate.”
