At The Great British Book Shop we are really proud to be sponsors for The National Literacy Trust and their Books About Town campaign. We have sponsored the bench depicting The Librarian – a character from Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series who is transformed into an orangutan. This amazing bench was designed and painted by the fab Paul Kidby. We have some exciting plans for the bench during the summer and will be sharing all the news here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Preserving the ‘real’ orangutans
As part of our activities around the Librarian bench, we are really pleased to be supporting the Orangutan Foundation.
Until the 15th September 2014, by using the checkout code Discworld5, customers will activate a donation of 5% of the sale price of their order from The Great British Book Shop to the Orangutan Foundation, and receive 5% off the price of their order too. The code may be used as many times as customers wish, for the duration of the offer.
The Oranguatan Foundation is supported by Sir Terry Pratchett and works to conserve the threatened orangutan and its globally important habitat , the tropical forests of Borneo and Sumatra.
