Brent Pope’s ‘Bones’ – The Perfect Gift for Children & Grandchildren!

‘Bones’ is a great new children’s book written by ‘Irish Kiwi’ Brent Pope with all proceeds going to the Irish Osteoporosis Society. Aimed at 7-12 year-olds and beautifully illustrated, Bones tells the story of a lazy teenager who won’t exercise and eats only junk food!

Available to buy in Mace stores nationwide, and online here, the book encourages children to eat well and shows how important exercise is in preventing osteoporosis. At just €2.99 (plus p&p) it’s the perfect gift for Christmas!

Everyone involved has given of their time & services free of charge, so 100% of the sale price is a donation to the charity, making this our biggest fundraising project to date.
