Anti-bullying book to be launched

A home-grown anti-bullying initiative aims to sign up 20,000 people online in a pledge to eradicate bullying from the community.

The event is the brainchild of author Chefanices Williams, who is launching her book, A Place Without Bullies, on November 25.

The publication is aimed at young children, and Ms Williams said she had received buy-in from the Ministry of Education to support the launch. A Facebook page will be announced for members of the public to sign up. With anti-bullying messages from guest speakers, the launch on the steps of City Hall will come also with a recital of the pledge by Ed Christopher, the town crier.

The book, which Ms Williams based on her experiences with bullying, is on sale at the launch, and she hopes to donate copies to schools.

To support the campaign, e-mail Ms Williams at chefaniceskarenwilliams@gmail.com
