A Peterhead publisher has expressed his thanks to work colleagues for donations towards the East Bali Poverty Project.

Allan Sneddon of Olida Publishing will be travelling to Bali, Indonesia on Friday, May 15 to volunteer as part of the project.

He will be travelling with author Sam Wilding to provide help and education to the people of Bali in order for them to look after themselves in the future.

Sam has created popular picture-books for children featuring two sister mice Tiffy and Toffy, he will take copies over for the children to read, before asking them to create their own stories - however they will focus on how they can improve their sanitation and nutrition instead.

After the books are created it is hoped they can be published and distributed around Bali to help children learn in the future.

Allan said: “Via generous donations of raffles and cash from employees, friends and colleagues of St Fergus North Sea Gas Terminal, I’ll be delighted to be able to present the chief executive officer David Booth with the cheque donation from the site.

“The money raised (£375) will go a long way to prevent and eradicate poor sanitation and health issues of impoverished children in the area.

“I would like to say a special thank you to Apache, Shell UK, National Grid and Total employees, as well as Sheena Scott’s customers at the Crimond Shop, and friends and colleagues at St Fergus.”
