Kumar Jawadekar has said he will donate all the royalties he will receive from sales of his eBook "Two is a mob" to the Katharine House Hospice.

Katharine House Hospice work to provide holistic care and support for people with advanced life-limited conditions, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease.

The 45-year-old, who is an electrical engineer by profession, said he was a supporter of the hospice and felt it was only right to help them during such a difficult period.

He said: "I've been living in Stafford for 12 years and wanted to do something to help Katherine House as they are my local charity and do so much good work.

"I decided that everything I make from this book will go towards their work supporting people as it was the best place to support."

Kumar, who moved to the UK 20 years ago from Mumbai in India, wrote the novel about legal migration, a topic he feels is not discussed enough in comparison to illegal migration.

He said: "I believe this story of three legal migrants is all about the challenges we face in our day-to-day life and how fortunate we are to meet the nicest of nice people."

The story also relates to donates to the hospice, with Kumar saying that many members of the Indian community in Stafford had donated time and money to Katherine House.

He said: "We have our Indian club over here and when I was the president of the club, we held a dinner and raised money for Katherine House from that.

"I, like the rest of the club, believe in doing good in the local community, so if I'm going to do something good, I want it to be for Katherine House."

"Two is a mob" can be read on any smart phone or tablet using Kindle App and is also available free of cost to all Kindle Unlimited readers.

The book can be bought at amazon.co.uk/TWO-MOB-Kumar-Jawadekar-ebook/dp/B083JH6F88
