We would like to say a special thank you to children’s authors David Horner and Michael Jackson of Goodeyedeers, who have supported MedEquip4Kids for many years as regular givers and through donating the royalties to us from their book sales online.
Both from Warrington, authors David and Michael established Goodeyedeers when Michael retired after 25 years as a primary school head teacher, and David stopped travelling around after a similar time as a visiting poet in schools. Goodeyedeers was set up to keep them busy and to raise money for their chosen charity by designing and selling educational resources online to primary teachers around the world. Their latest venture, All Good Things, is a collection of 40 comic verses for children (and big kids!) written by David, with QR codes linking readers to animated performances of a selection of the poems, created by Michael.
Michael says: “As two retirees, we are always looking for new projects to keep our aging minds active, hence our foray into self-publishing. As well as David’s poetry book, we have also recently self-published some colouring books, notebooks and a book of writing prompts – again all royalties from these books will be going to MedEquip4Kids.”
You can find out more about the two authors and see their range of books on the Goodeyedeers Amazon page.
We are very grateful to David and Michael for their generous support. They are pictured above at Warrington Hospital, where their donations have helped fund medical equipment for the maternity ward.
