Author pens book to help heart patients
7:30am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
A SUPPLY teacher has written his second book for students — and plans to give the money to The British Heart Foundation.
Hatam Abbas, aged 45, from Ladybridge, is writing his second book ‘Science Dissection KS3 and KS4’ on Biology.
It took Mr Abbas eight years to write the book as he penned it in his spare time.
It was finally completed this month — just in time for the new academic year.
Mr Abbas said: “Education is not about money, when money gets involved it’s not education anymore, it’s business.
When I see a student achieve it makes me happy, and I want to help them achieve which is why I write these books.”
The book includes pictures of real life science experiments he taught his students.
Instead of charging for the book, Mr Abba is asking for people to donate money to the BHF.
His previous educational book about maths raised £3,800 for The British Red Cross with some customers offering between £60 and £100.
The motivation behind the books is that Mr Abbas wants to take the pressure to buy expensive books off parents.
He said “My aim is to pass my knowledge onto students and to give the profit to charity as they need help too.
Mr Abbas’ next project is to write another educational maths book.
Copies of the book are sent via email and if anyone would like a copy of the book or to contact Mr Abbas email email@example.com or call on 07719711782 Earlier this year, The Bolton News launched a campaign to make sure every child in Bolton leaves school knowing how to save a life.
We joined forces with Bolton West MP Julie Hilling to promote the teaching of emergency lifesaving skills.
The main aim of the campaign is to ensure that all pupils in Bolton know what to do when faced with someone who is suffering a cardiac arrest, choking or bleeding.
Another aim of the campaign is to ensure every school in Bolton, and other public places, has their own defibrillator—a lifesaving device that can be used to restart the heart when someone suffers a cardiac arrest.
