BILLERICAY SCHOOL BOOK AND JAMES DORRINGTON FUND AT GREAT ORMOND STREET HOSPITAL

As an author always keen on researching my bang-up-to-date non-fiction projects (currently to be viewed in the Billericay Gazette) and Essex Life, it's satisfying to see some of my earlier books still in print after a dozen years or so. 

Happy to discover that one such book is earning pennies for the young patients at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital in memory of the lovely James Dorrington who died on 1 January 2002.  James's story is included in my third book The Billericay School which took around 18 months to research and write after interviewing scores of teachers and pupils and eventually was launched in 2003.

checking out the book when it was presented by Billericay School 6th Formers on a trip to Pakistan 

Today, I discovered that my book is being advertised on the Billericay School's website for £10 (saving £3) and obtainable from School Librarian, Mrs J Clare ( telephone 01277 655191)  or by email from the school office.

The book profiles not only the history of their school but of this small Essex town's history over many centuries.  All profits will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital and The James Dorrington Fund. Background details can be found on the Billericay School website
