Mark Chestney writing book of anecdotes in aid of L6ve Life

There are so many stories of what happens to drivers of bus and coaches in the course of their duty you could write a book about them. Former Skirlaugh rugby league club secretary and bus driver Mark Chestney has done just that with a 200 page book with charities benefitting.

“I have been writing this for a while with Prostate Cancer a big thing these days but it was a story closer to home that touched me,” said Mark.

“I had the privilege to be secretary of Skirlaugh when Lee Newton played in what was a great rugby league side and it was a great time to be around rugby league in Hull. When I found out Lee had been struck down with Motor Neurone Disease it was quite upsetting and I want to do my bit to help.

“Now I’m no athlete, as many people will tell you, but as some players may say my match reports have been legendary so I would like to contribute with my writing. I hope people will buy my book as proceeds from the sales will be going to both the charities to try and help develop a cure for both.”

The book will contain stories, anecdotes and sketches of things which have happened to bus, coach and tram drivers from all parts of the world. It is available on pre order for the cost of £10 in book form or £7 for Kindle or Ebook and due out at the end of September.
