Premier supports COVID charity book

UK print media supplier, Premier, has supplied the material to produce a new book aimed at sharing peoples’ COVID-19 stories and raising money for charity in the wake of the pandemic.

19 and 20 and Me, a record of love, loss and lockdown combines the very real personal accounts of over 60 people. Each story is captivating, you will laugh, you will cry, and you will be humbled; as many of these personal stories will resonate with every reader who picks up a copy of this amazing, heartfelt book.


19 and 20 and Me is a project that was thought of and put together by Yassamin Amir-Ahmadi, a Pilates, Garuda, and Foundation training instructor based in Dorset. At the start of the pandemic, Yassamin set up regular group chats online for all the classes that she taught and continues to make weekly videos and teach classes over Zoom, building stronger bonds with her clients and students.  


19 and 20 and Me not only provides an outlet for people to share their COVID-19 experiences, but it also supports some great causes. All proceeds from the sale of 19 and 20 and Me will be donated to organisations such as Mind, a charity that fights for and supports mental health and Shelter, a charity aimed at offering advice to desperate households and tackling homelessness. The Trussell Trust, which provides emergency food and support, is another charity set to benefit from the sales of this book as well as Arts for Life Project, which is a charity aimed at supporting and championing young people and their families’ wellbeing through creative arts.


The print and production of 19 and 20 and Me were sponsored by Canon and Henry Ling Limited. Premier donated the paper requirements for the book, supplying G Print Smooth 130gsm for the text and UPM Digi Finesse Silk 150gsm for the covers.

Ben Woolf, Director, Premier Paper said, “when Helen at Henry Ling approached me about the project I was instantly sold.  Covid has without exception touched everyone in one way or another.  The prospect of supporting a valued customer while helping to create a lasting mark, something positive to acknowledge people’s experiences and on top, raise funds for a suite of charities was too good an opportunity to turn down.

“Furthermore, to create a book seemed the most fitting medium, given the number of people who rediscovered a love of reading through lockdown.”

The CO₂ emissions from the paper used in the production of 19 and 20 and Me, have been mitigated through the Carbon Capture Programme, directly supporting the work of the Woodland Trust, and creating new woodland here in the UK for all to enjoy.

There are 1,000 copies of this book available - to order a copy, visit
