National Doughnut Week has officially started! 

National Doughnut Week aims to raise money to support The Children’s Trust, the leading charity for children with brain injury, so that they can continue to provide much needed rehabilitation work at their specialist centre.

This year, Hachette Children's and I have partnered with National Doughnut Week by providing the campaign with some bespoke illustrations of Mr Panda (my picture book character famed, ironically, for his disdain of doughnuts) spreading the word of this incredibly important campaign.

I’m so pleased to be able to support the valuable work of The Children’s Trust and help raise awareness, and I'm thrilled that publishing news websites, including Book Brunch and Reading Zone, along with my local paper, have helped publicise the campaign.

Bakers across the whole of the UK are uniting for this cause and donating money earned from their doughnut sales to The Children's Trust.  I'm not so sure my homemade doughnuts would be all that edible, but I’m glad I can contribute with an illustrated one or two.

To find a participating bakery near you, please visit this page: http://nationaldoughnutweek.org/search.php#

Enjoy your doughnuts! But remember to say PLEASE!

Hachette have kindly sent a batch of freshly printed 'Please Mr Panda' books to The Children's Trust.
