Hi there, our children's book colleague, writer Tommy Donbavand is in a bad way with cancer, with weeks or months to live, and we're trying to help him and his family stay afloat.

You can discover more offers here. Big thanks to Tommy's awesome writer friends Barry Hutchinson and John Dougherty for setting this up!
