Tom Avery, Vintage Books Editorial Assistant, will be running the London Marathon for a second time this year on behalf of BTBS the Book Trade Charity. BTBS is the trade’s own welfare charity, offering help to anyone who has worked in the trade for more than one year and who has a problem, whether personal, financial or health-related. BTBS offers direct financial assistance to individuals in need through its Grants programme, information and support through the confidential national telephone Helpline (0808 100 2304) and housing at Kings Langley in Hertfordshire. BTBS helps some 200 people a year, and would not be able to continue without the support of the trade.’
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, so please visit www.justgiving.com/tomavery to sponsor Tom.
