Spinal Patients given Books from World Book Night 

Spinal patients at Salisbury District Hospital received a welcome surprise when technical writer Westrow Cooper from Blandford handed over 10 copies of Fingersmith by Sarah Walters as part of World Book Night.

World Book night is a celebration of the power of books and the pleasures of reading, in which 1,000,000 books have been given away to be read and enjoyed and then shared.

Mr Cooper said: “I spent a lot of time in hospital when I was younger  and I know what a difference it can make to have good books to read. With our regional spinal unit so close, I wanted to give copies of my chosen book to patents who I know will have to spend some time in hospital because of their injuries.”
