Rowling in charities headlines again
JK Rowling has joined the Save Our Sara campaign.
She donated a signed set of all five Harry Potter books in hardback, including a first edition of the latest book, The Order Of The Phoenix.
The rare signed set could raise thousands of pounds for Sara's fund at auction.
The Edinburgh writer said:'I am very pleased to be able to support the Daily Record's campaign for Sara.'
Rowling,39, is well known for her involvement with charity.
She is patron of the Multiple Sclerosis Society Scotland, a cause that is close to her heart. Her mother Anne died, aged 45, from the disease.
Rowling has donated parts in Harry Potter films to raise money for the charity.
The author, who lives in Merchiston, said: 'Being able to campaign and fund-raise for MS is the most personally meaningful thing to have come out of being famous.' Rowling is also an ambassador for the National Council of One Parent Families and supports the Scottish Maggie's Cancer Care Charity.
