Get well soon Aaron Kent

Aaron Kent was recently rushed to hospital after suffering bleeding on the brain, he remains in a stable condition, but he is a long way from out of the woods.

Aaron Kent is a pillar of the poetry community and through his press, Broken Sleep Books, he's given lots of opportunities to writers, as well as raising bags of money for charity. A tireless poet, campaigner and family man, this is your opportunity to give back to Aaron.

The proceeds will be given to his wife and children Emma, Rue and Otis and Aaron's poetry press Broken Sleep Books. 

This isn't a massive 'break the internet' style event, it is just a small fundraiser to show support to Aaron in a time of need.  There is no shame if you can't donate, or can only donate a little. The most important thing is to keep on rooting for Aaron on the road to recovery.

Please write lots of messages of support and keep your fingers crossed he can read them soon.
