Book proceeds to benefit Nkayi ONLY
Published: 03 January 2012 (2136 Views)
A former Zimbabwe national team ruby player – Andy Pocock has declared that proceeds from sale of a book which he has written should benefit the people of Nkayi.

Pocock recently wrote an autobiography titled: Open side-My Journey to the Ruby World Cup.

He advised Senator David Coltart of the book in letter which we publish hereunder unedited:

"I have just received the following letter from Andy Pocock, David Pocock's father and encourage you all to go out and buy David' s new book, the proceeds of which will go to helping poor folk in Nkayi. Please, if you can buy the book direct from www.heroesboots.com.


"Dear Family and Friends,

"As you might/might not know, my son Dave has written an autobiography/world cup diary titled "Openside- My Journey to the Rugby World Cup". He is very honest and talks about life growing up in Zimbabwe, the move to Australia, his schooling in Australia, as well as the life of a professional rugby player, amongst other things. The book is available in all major book stores, but in order to maximise profits, Dave is trying to sell it privately through www.heroesboots.com. All of the profits from the book are going towards his charity Eighty Twenty Vision (www.eightytwentyvision.org). It is basically a community of about 110 000 people in Nkayi, Zimbabwe, a place not far from where we used to live that he is trying to empower the people so that they are able to provide for themselves and become self sufficient. He stresses that Eightytwenty is not an aid program, but rather a community development scheme whereby the people are helped to increase their capacity to sustain themselves.

"As already mentioned, the book can be ordered through www.heroesboots.com and delivery can be expected within 3 working days. I am sending out this email solely to help out my son, and to aid him in something that he is truly passionate about. I ask that you not only consider buying a copy of this book for yourself, but also forward this email to a single person, 5 people, 10 people, or everyone you know that may be interested in a good read. I do stress that it's not a typical sports autobiography and touches on some topics very relevant to all of our lives.

"If you have any questions at all, my other son Steve is actually distributing the books and doing the admin side of it so feel free to email him: steve@heroesboots.com or call him on 0414 168 989.

"Your support in this would be great.

"I wish you and your families a blessed Christmas and a prosperous new year."

Best Regards,

Andy Pocock
