She said: “As part of my Book Pledge, I have been running a fundraising raffle, which has been very generously supported by local businesses and will raise money to provide books for Roundabout."

“And I’m very excited to be taking part in the Chocolate Festival too and I’ll have a great selection of Usborne books on display.

“As a primary school and the mother of two small children, I was drawn straight away to Roundabout and the work it is doing with young people.

“Books are essential and vital when you have children and I am very pleased that I am going to be able to supply Roundabout with some of our titles.”
