Wee Bessie Project
We are very excited to tell everyone that we have secured funding from The National Lottery Awards for All for a new book project.
“The Yellow on the Broom” by Betsy Whyte is being reworked for a new audience by her grandson, David Pullar. Aimed at sharing the stories of Scottish Travellers’ culture with a wider and younger audience, the illustrated book ‘Wee Bessie’ will tell Betsy’s story to 3 – 7 year-olds.
A total of 500 copies of Wee Bessie will be donated to libraries and primary schools across Scotland with reading sessions from ourselves, teaching younger children about our travelling heritage.
