A Hamish the Highland Cow literary event in collaboration with Children 1st. The opportunity to receive an author visit in support from Children 1st was open to all scottish primary schools as a charitable prize. Newbigging Primary School was selected by Children 1st through a random selection process and they received a visit from myself and the Children 1st Mascot. As a further contribution to the prize – I donated a copy of Hamish the Highland Cow, Home Sweet Hamish and a ‘Hamish’ mask making pack to a pupil from the school.
