KIND-HEARTED Rednal authors are donating signed copies of their book to a shop in Hebden Bridge after it was wrecked by the recent floods.

Andy Clark and his partner Dee Mathews have boxed up ten of their self-published novel, The Time Store, to be shipped off to The Book Case, on Market Street, today (Friday). The store is just one of the buildings in the area which has been left severely damaged by the deluge.

Andy was born in Yorkshire and his sister is still living in the area and her village is also flooded, so the disastrous effects of weather is a cause close to his heart.

The couple own their own publishing business called Clock Face Publishing and after seeing larger organisations doing their bit to help and pleas for smaller companies to contribute, they decided to do what they could.

He said: “When we saw the news about the book shop, which is only a little store, we thought this was something we could help with.

“After seeing all the books floating around on top of the water we thought this was the least we could do. It must be heart-breaking for them.”

The pair have carted their boxes of book, which was only released in September, to the Post Office and are sending them at their own cost.
