The Book Bus UK road show coming your way

Posted by / in Blog, Featured Posts, The Book Bus /

The Book Bus is coming to England, Scotland and Wales!

Don’t be surprised if you spot Quentin Blake’s iconic artwork driving about the roads of the UK as the Book Bus sets off on a road show this month. Wrapped in eye-catching Quentin Blake designs and sponsored by our friends at Miles Kelly Publishing, the bus will be setting off from Lands End on Monday 14 October, visiting schools, libraries, universities and workplaces across the UK on a three month road trip.

The Book Bus
The road show is being launched to spread awareness of the charity, recruit volunteers for Book Bus projects overseas and raise funds to run mobile libraries in Africa, Asia and South America.

In the past she has led our 15 week Inca & Amazon Venture through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina as well as Inca Summer Venture in Peru and the 12 week Patagonia Venture. She helped set up The Book Bus and later worked on running it in Zambia, Malawi and Ecuador.  Jackie is also the person behind our Inti World Yoga adventure trips. We caught up with her before her latest adventure to find out what life’s like on the move…
