Mango Bubbles Day 2016

In June 2016 we celebrated our second anniversary. Through a raffle, booksales and donations by the kids at Mango’s school, we raised a mighty £1,340 for children’s reading charity Beanstalk. We did all this with the lovely people at Leaf Cafe & Bookshop in Hertford.

Huge thanks to the authors who came to Mango’s school and to Leaf. You’re amazing!

Thank you, too, to all the authors who donated signed books for our raffle. And especially to Helen Moss who offered herself as a prize! She was ‘won’ by someone who generously passed the prize on to Beanstalk! So we arranged for one of the schools Beanstalk works with to be the lucky recipients of this brilliant prize!

Thant you to everyone who made Mango Day another huge success. See you in 2017!


Mango Bubbles Day 2015

We celebrated our first anniversary by holding the first ever Mango Bubbles Day! And we raised money for children’s reading charity Beanstalk.

We had an online raffle to win fantastic signed books by David Walliams, Piers Torday, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Robin Stevens, Helen Moss, Abi Elphinstone, Anna Kemp, Elli Woollard, Nick Cook, Jane Hardstaff, Jo Cotterill, Tatum Flynn and McFly band members Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter. Plus a set of eight Mr Gum books by Andy Stanton, illustrated by David Tazzyman. And a copy of The Minecraft Blockopedia.

Prizes 24-6-15
We arranged for Piers Torday to visit children’s bookshop Leaf, in Hertford. Piers wrote The Last Wild trilogy and has won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and been nominated for the Waterstones Children’s Books Prize. He was brilliant!

See Piers interview Mango Bubbles Boy!

And we had three brilliant authors in to visit my school – Elli Woollard, Anna Kemp and Helen Moss. We had a non-uniform day, a raffle (to win book vouchers) and we had a book sale. All to raise money for Beanstalk!

THANK YOU to everyone who supported our events and raffle!!! Especially Leaf, Piers, Elli, Anna and Helen.

In total we raised £1230.92!!!!!!!
