CHAS get a preview of a new book


Families staying at Rachel House Children’s Hospice, run by Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) were given special preview of Merchiston Publishing’s new book ‘Treasure Island: A Play’. Rosie Howie from Merchiston Publishing, the in-house publishing arm of Edinburgh Napier University read an extract from the book to a couple of pirates at the hospice. Accompanying Rosie were students Andrew Bianchi, Carol-Anne Royan, Kirstin Rhymer and Jamie Williams. Profits from the book which has been developed for Primary School level drama will be donated to CHAS. The book officially launches on Friday 8 June 2012.

Rosie Howie said: “Lynn Brittney brings Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story to life in this fantastic children’s play that the whole family can enjoy. We’re thrilled to be able to donate profits to CHAS.”


CHAS Fundraiser Amy Telford said: “Thank you to Merchiston Publishing for their support. It’s fantastic that Rosie was able to visit Rachel House to meet some of the families that we support and give us a sneak peak of the play.”
