Makes Books Last Longer

Tuff Cover And SVP

Irish Book Protection company donates €10,000 primary and secondary school books to St. Vincent de Paul. 

Tuff Cover & SVPRyco Book Protection Services Ltd., based in Ballywaltrim Business Centre, Bray, Co. Wicklow were delighted to be able to contribute to their local community by donating €9,000 of new primary and secondary school books to the St. Vincent De Paul for distribution to local schools in the Bray and Wicklow area.  Local St. Vincent De Paul representative, Marie Hegarty, accepted the donation on behalf of St. Vincent de Paul and vowed to ensure that the books were distributed to as many schools in the Bray and Wicklow area as possible.

Marie Hegarty was delighted that not only were ‘Ryco’ donating school books but that the company had also covered the school books with their patented durable and resilient Rhino ‘Tuff’ book covers. Rhino ‘Tuff’ covers help extend the lifespan of all books by transforming paperbacks into virtual hardbacks!  These hardwearing book covers are widely used by public libraries, university libraries, school libraries and, lately, increasing numbers of school book rental schemes.  It is now the policy of many school book rental schemes to protect their books with Rhino ‘Tuff’  book covers.

Marie Hegarty of St. Vincent de Paul: “This is a wonderful and timely donation as we have a huge demand for school books at the moment. It will make a significant impact to the lives of children in the Wicklow area.  It’s an added bonus that Ryco also covered the books so beautifully and to such a high standard.  The book protection provided will definitely increase the lifespan of books and that’s good news for everyone”. The total value of this Irish company’s school book donation including the Rhino books covers is estimated to be in excess of €10,000.

As so many schools are under  increasing pressure to provide books for children most in need, this donation is timely as the St Vincent de Paul hope to have the books sorted and ready for distribution to schools after the mid-term Halloween Break.
