Book launch for Gemma

Gemma Brown, who has written a children’s book called The Marvellous Marathon Dragon in aid of Asthma UK, was overwhelmed by the response and sales when the book launched at Bridgnorth Library in October.

“We were delighted to welcome over a hundred families at the launch, which of course had Puff the marathon runner in attendance!” she said. Gemma and her husband Ashley have raised over £70,000 for Cameron’s Fund in memory of their son who lost his life aged two to an asthma attack. The book is based on Dana Power, who dresses up as Puff to run marathons and fun runs, and who has raised thousands of pounds for the fund, as well as helping raise awareness of asthma. Details of how to purchase the book can be found at marathondragon.co.uk.
