There was a special delivery to CF House as Lorraine Levis donated over 700 books and magazine for CF paediatric in-patient wards. Lorraine started a book drive, Book Buds following a discussion with a grandmother of a child with CF. Learning about the condition and that patients require isolation rooms in hospital, Lorraine set out to provide books for the children to help pass the time in hospital as they undergo treatment. Books had to be new, due to the risk of cross infection and the children can take the books home. After a successful drive and with support from O'Brien Press, Big Bang Comics. Dundrum, Dubray Books and numerous authors 180 bags will be delivered to hospitals nationwide with books for children of all ages. A huge thank you to Lorraine and all those who supported the book drive.
