Author, Amy Stone has teamed up with Roundabout, and her author proceeds from this book will go towards supporting the Sheffield based charity. SRL Publishing will also be matching the authors contribution. Amy and SRL Publishing can announce today the amount raised is more than £3,000.
Roundabout is South Yorkshire’s local youth housing charity providing shelter, support, and life skills to young people like Ruby, who are homeless or as risk of homelessness.
Amy, author of Strong Stuff and The Raven Wheel, said “I’m delighted that between us we’ve managed to raise this amount for such a great charity. Roundabout make a huge difference to the lives of young people across South Yorkshire and I’m so proud we’ll be able to help them continue their vital work.”
