Children’s book, The Grandad Grand Prix, will be released at a special launch event at Douglas Macmillan Hospice on Saturday 6th May at 11am.
The book, by first time author Lee Crowther, is one of a kind, as it deals with the tale of two grandads competing for their granddaughter’s affection – when one is diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The Grandad Grand Prix, published by North Staffordshire Press, was inspired partly from Lee’s personal experiences after his father Barrie Crowther passed away at the Dougie Mac in December 2012.
Lee Crowther commented,
“I had this horrendous feeling I might forget some of the things we did together as a family, and I wanted to document them in some way. This was where the idea for a book came from.
I looked around and saw that there wasn’t really anything for kids that dealt with relatives who had cancer.”
Suzi Smith, Corporate Fundraising & Events Head added,
“We’d like to wish Lee the best of luck with the launch of The Grandad Grand Prix, and thank him for his support.”
The Grandad Grand Prix can be ordered by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, contacting North Staffordshire Press or H & H Spalding Books and is priced at £6.99 each.
