Local Author Supports Wonderful Charity through his New Book; Peter the Puffin

Peter the Puffin written by local author, Anthony Mitchell, tells the story of a mischievous puffin from the moment he was born until the moment ……… You will have to read the book to find out!

In 2009 Anthony who lives in West Sussex founded a registered charity called “The Loiyangalani Trust”.  The charity raises funds to support a primary school in Loiyangalani which is situated in Northern Kenya.  Not only does the charity fund the school, but through a network of supporters, it sponsors students on to secondary school and beyond.  

All profits from the sales of Peter the Puffin are channelled to assist in the education of one of the students supported by the Trust.

Although a puffin in Eastbourne or a puffin in Brighton would be a puffin lost, puffins are native to the shores of Great Britain.  They are delightful creatures, once seen never forgotten.  Unfortunately, their numbers are in decline.  It is Anthony’s sincere hope that the book can be the subject of an animated film that one day might raise funds for research to establish the reasons behind this decline in numbers.

The book is ideal for parents and grandparents to read aloud to their children and grandchildren, containing some very amusing illustrations to be enjoyed by all. 

The book is available through Amazon as a paperback or Kindle book. The ISBN is 9 7819 1039 4113.  Should you wish to contact Anthony direct please email: anthonyemitchell@btinternet.com, he would be happy to post you a copy.

About the Loiyangalani Trust

Supporting children’s education for a better future

The Loiyangalani Trust was founded in late 2009 by a small group of people in West Hoathly, West Sussex. One of the group had visited Loiyangalani several times and wanted to help the local community through education. Loiyangalani is so far north of the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, that it receives very little regular support from other larger charities.

We are now a registered charity. We take no money from the trust for administration, and the website and leaflet have been funded through recovered Gift Aid.
