We are very grateful to Robert Akeroyd for his generous donations of hundreds of books for this project.   
Pictured here with Peter Cribb and John Sklenar who presented him with a Certificate of Appreciation.
The High Commissioner to the Maldives, David Jessup and his wife spoke to Peter and Bev on their recent visit and made a request for books for schools in the remote atolls.  Peter grasped the opportunity and has used all his contacts to source materials.
Peter, John, Shradd, Jo, Abdi and Lesley have spent many hours collecting, sorting and repacking books.  The 4 pallets are now shrink wrapped and will join 4pallets of children's books donated by Bronwyn and team in the education aisle, and a pallet of school and student stationery items.
The shipment will go via a Rotarian here with access - late June ETD.  
Another busy day at Donations in Kind- packing books for the Maldives.
