Please vote for books for a bus library

I seem to be on a mission to get books for schoolchildren in London.

My friend's local primary school has the chance to win £10k for books towards their new bus library (the bus itself was kindly donated free by Arriva - a bus company). This is a friend at work but coincidentally this is also the school that my teacher friend's children go to (she works at a different school, the one in Tower Hamlets)

Could you find a few minutes to support them?

All you need to do is register using the link below and then follow the link they will send you cast your vote for Aldersbrook Primary School.

This doesn't seem to work for everyone outside the UK

Voting opened yesterday. https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/---/17-5941

For UK voters there is a prize draw for voters which will appear as an option after you've voted. You do have to register with an email to vote.

After registration you'll get sent back to voting. You'll find the project by typing "Aldersbrook" into the project search box on the top left.

Anyone who votes for the bus library funding and posts on here will be entered into a draw for a wishlist book or wings for a month (please tell me your preference)

Same problem here :-(
Sorry about that. I really hope this school will win. How I wish I could visit that bus and lose myself in there for a while :-)
Fingers crossed!

Took about 10 minutes to get registered and find my way back to voting, but I voted. Also posted on my fb page, but I warned friends it's a bit complicated, so I don't know if that will garner any more votes or not.

HURRAY!

Succeded! After reading anathema-device's post. I decided to try again. Yesterday I couldn't even enter the site (it must have been something wrong with internet or something; or Samhain tricky stuff!! Woooo!) :-)

So you have 10 votes from me. Hope it helps :-)
No entry, though. Just fingers crossed for the project!
