If you’ve been moved by the plight of the refugees over the past few weeks and months, please consider donating to this Save the Children appeal.

It was started by the awesome children’s author Patrick Ness and has garnered over half a million pounds already – it would be great to get it to a million!

Authors and publishers are giving very generously, often £10,000 a piece as the total hits each target. It’s a phenomenal effort and just shows that compassion and generosity are still alive and kicking in these troubled times.
