Granite Products Sponsors Island Book

Seymour’s Seaside Picnic’ is a charming book about the adventures of Seymour Bear. It is a rhyming tale of friendship and the joy of living in Jersey written by a local author, Penny Byrne, who invited children across the Island to help finish the book by contributing illustrations.

Profits from book sales will go to Jersey Child Care Trust, a small, local charity making a big difference for children living with disabilities and/or adversity and offering support for them and their families.

Simon Clowes, General Manager of Granite Products said, “We are so pleased to be able to support this great charity in our local community.”

In 2019 the charity supported 39 children with special educational needs and/or disabilities in 19 mainstream private nurseries providing over 9,850 hours of support. Without the charity’s support, these children would not have been able to go to nursery.
