An Appeal from Michael Morpurgo

Wednesday 23 Nov 2016

Michael Morpurgo has been a Patron of Bag Books since 2002. The best-selling author of War Horse recently made an appeal on our behalf on BBC Radio 4. If you missed the broadcast you can listen online here.

He also recorded a special message about the importance of multi-sensory books and his support of Bag Books. It lasts just 85 seconds and you can listen here. To date his appeal has raised a record £13,450 - many thanks to everyone who donated.

A BBC Radio 4 Appeal is a great opportunity to not only raise funds for Bag Books but to raise awareness about our work. Our last appeal in 2012 hosted by Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson raised nearly £9,000 and enabled us to attract new supporters.
