Our colleague publishes new book to raise money for charity

Paul Golledge Book

Our Customer Service Officer Paul Golledge is helping raise money for a dog rescue charity that is very close to his heart.

On 4 December Paul launched his new book on Amazon called ‘Dat’s Wot Me Sed’ which is a collection of funny, silly one-page stories based on imaginary conversations that Paul has with his dog, Indiana Bones ‘Indy’.

This new book is a follow up to his first book called ‘Me is Dat Now’, which was released in May 2021 and has just under 40 five-star reviews!

Paul said: “I sell my books to raise money for the charity rescue service that found our dog Indiana Bones for us, called High Hope Dog Rescue. All proceeds from the books go straight to the charity.

“High Hopes are a dog rescue in the Worcestershire area dedicated to bettering the lives of dogs and giving them the life and love they deserve. Without the incredible work of High Hopes, thousands of truly amazing dogs would never know the love of a good home.

“It would be great to raise as much as I can for them through the sale of my books, as well as just raising awareness of the amazing work they do.”

Here are just a few of the reviews on Amazon for Paul’s first book ‘Me is Dat Now’:

“Indiana Bones is a legend. These anecdotes have made me laugh every day for the last year or so. My days during the various lockdowns were made all the brighter by seeing these captions each day. We have a rescue dog from the same charity, High Hopes, so have an affinity with all their rescue pups. Indy has expressions and mannerisms that are brilliantly portrayed in this book. I look at him and see and hear him as Paul writes him. It’s a dogs-eye view of life - especially with Willow the cat. Well worth a purchase - you will smile, laugh, empathise all while contributing to a small but hard working and amazing dog rescue charity. I am looking forward to the next edition, soon hopefully.” 5 stars.

“A very funny book, Indiana Bones is a star, and so is his owner.Tall tales, movie myths, and the much-maligned cat.
Great fun for kids and adults alike, my grandkids love it too.
Proceeds are going to a dog rescue charity making it a must buy!” 5 stars.

“This was a fantastic Father’s Day present loved by everyone in the family. Super tales of a lovable rouge and his Butler. Brilliant, easy read- that can be picked up at any time and gives you a moment respite from everyday life. A must have!” 5 stars

These funny books will make a great Christmas gift and are priced at £14.99 on Amazon, with all proceeds going to High Hope Dog Rescue.
