Ads the poet is just 12 years old, but has already won several awards for writing poetry, including a Brit Writers Awards; a Gold Blue Peter Badge and this years Young Scot Arts Award.  Adam is keen to raise funds to support the work of Bobath Scotland


he loves books, so decided to hold a Book Bring & Buy to raise funds for Bobath.

Ads' Book Bring and Buy will be held from 11am-1pm on Saturday 20th October 2012 at St Mark's Unitarian Church, Castle Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2DP (opposite the Farmer's Market).

Adam will be raffle books donated by well known authors as part of the Bring & Buy, but some people who won't be able to come along on the day also wanted to purchase tickets for the raffle, so this page has been set up so that is possible.

From 1st October, the start of Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month until the raffle is drawn at Ads' Book Bring & Buy Sale for Bobath Scotland you can purchase tickets for my Big Raffle through this Just Giving Page.


Tickets are £2 each or a strip of five tickets for £5.

You can pay for your tickets from this page as donation ( don't tick the gift aid box as gift aid can not be claimed on money used to purchase raffle tickets).

Complete your name and in the bit where you can send a message you can indicate if there is a book you would particularly like to win, if it is still available and your ticket is pulled out you will then get that book. If that book has gone you will be allocated a book from the ones remaining. If you wish you can list the book is order of preference. You can also post this information as a comment underneath this post or email to the email address given below in this post, if you have an problems posting it at the Just Giving Page.

The signed books kindly donated by the authors are

War Horse by Michael Murpurgo

Dead Souls by Ian Rankin

Set In Darkness by Ian Rankin

My Animals and Other Family by Clare Balding

This list will be updated if further signed books are received from generous authors before the Raffle is drawn on Saturday 20th at 12.45pm at my Book Bring & Buy For Bobath Scotland.

At least once a day this Just Giving Page will be checked and raffle tickets will be allocated to everyone who has purchased them. The name of the ticket owner will be written on the back of each ticket purchased and a record will be kept of the tickets purchased and any preferences with regard to books in the raffle.

If you win a prize and you are not at the Book Bring and Buy for Bobath Scotland on 20th October, Ads' mum will contact you to let you know you have won and arrange for your book to be posted or delivered to you. Please ensure we have contact details for you, so that you can get your prize!

Please spread the word about this Raffle as the more tickets I sell the more Bobath Scotland will be able to help boys and girls from across Scotland.
