No Bars on Books

Aug 10 2015
No Bars on Books

No Bars on Books is an initiative of Tasmanian Speech Pathologists for Speech Pathology Week  (23rd-29th August) that aims to bring books to children separated from mummy or daddy because of imprisonment.

No Bars on Books will supply donated (new and excellent quality second-hand) picture books to the Risdon LINC’s Books-on-CD program. Parents in prison can record a story for their children – and the child receives the CD, the book, and the irreplaceable experience of hearing mummy or daddy’s voice recorded just for them!

Fullers is proud to be a donation point for this wonderful program. We can collect donations over the phone or in store, and will supply books at cost price to the program.
