Book Aid For Ukraine

The publishing industry has come together to raise money money for British Ukrainian Aid through an online auction – and almost £48,000 has been donated already! Pop over and take a look at some of the items on offer, from signed books, to lunches with authors…

The auction is the brainchild of literary agent Hayley Steed at the Madeleine Milburn Agency. Every penny of the money raised will go to British Ukrainian Aid.

Milly Johnson book and gifts

You’ll find a whole host of items available from signed books, agent one-to-ones, hotel stays and lunches with authors to original artwork, exclusive merchandise and sightseeing flights.

All of these treats are on offer from members of the publishing industry, and more widely. Their common goal is to raise money for the Ukrainian people.

The auction is open until midnight on March 20, so there’s still plenty of time to make a bid.
