BBC Radio Shropshire

It was great to hear our very own John Bennett on BBC Radio Shropshire last night.

John joined Mark Elliott on #TheSevenOclockShow to share the magic of Mr Pinklenose and how Blind Veterans UK’s amazing military style support helped to get him back on his feet!

Please do listen here if you can. John’s interview from 39mins, 35secs is wonderful:

✍️ If you’re local this Sunday; why not pop over to the Mr Pinklenose book signing and story telling session with John at The Coppice on Holyhead Road, Bicton Heath, Shrewsbury, SY3 8DT between 2pm and 4pm? A fantastic way to end the summer holidays ðŸ¤©

John is kindly donating 50p from every book sold to support the work of Blind Veterans UK. Thanks very much John; and Mr Pinklenose! We wish you both every success ðŸ™ðŸ’™

The first photo shows John sitting with copies of Mr Pinklenose stacked in front of him; holding a copy. The second photo shows an illustration of Mr Pinklenose holding out his hands, palms upwards, beside each shoulder with a crescent of stars cascading over his head from one palm to the other. The text above the illustration reads; ‘have you met the characters?’
