When not surrounded by TV and newspaper cameras and radio microphones, Nell and Roger signed copies of the book for shoppers, and collected donations for the JKNE charity. Nell was very patient and kind, and told us she liked the way the book had turned out and thought it would be a big hit with readers.
Asda stores across the North East are donating £1 from every copy sold to JKNE. We'll be posting more photos, plus some of the TV, radio and newspaper coverage of the launch here on the blog over the next few days, and tomorrow we'll be giving away a copy of the book specially signed by Nell (and Roger!), so watch this space.
P.S. Yes of course Stu and I had our photo taken with Nell. Nell is the one with the smile!
