A fun children’s book (price: £5.99) has landed at your local Scotmid just in time for Christmas with the unforgettable title, ‘Meet HammerHead and Captain StinkyPants’ with all proceeds from sales going to our Charity of the Year partner, Samaritans.
Written by Colin Macleod, the Chief Executive Officer of The Channel Islands Co-operative Society and FRTS Director, the book follows the adventures of his two sons Harris and Lewis on the day they are whisked off to a secret land, far beyond the skies and transformed into superheroes HammerHead and Captain StinkyPants.
Colin said: “Like a lot of dads, my bedtime routines with the boys have been dominated by storytelling. Harris, Lewis and I have been fairly chaotic with the way that we have imagined bedtime stories and we often take it in turns to create different parts of a story.
“This fairly random way of discovering our collective imaginations has, over the years, led to some themes emerging. We have built characters, worlds, emotions and dreams together at bedtime.
“I am extremely grateful to Scotmid for their support with this project.
“The book has successfully raised thousands of pounds for charities in the Channel Islands and with the help of your Society it can benefit people in your communities too. I hope hundreds of other children will enjoy sharing our adventure whilst raising money for Scotmid’s Charity of the Year partner.”
