*EXTENDED to July 1st!* We want your pre-loved books!

This June we’ll be collecting your pre-loved books, so that book charity the Children’s Book Project can re-distribute them to children who need them most.

The Children’s Book Project works with primary schools, foodbanks, prisons and women’s groups to gift gently used, donated books to children with very few books of their own. Last year, they gifted over 400,000 books to children in need.

The collection box will be in the shop from the 9th to the 24th of June, so get sorting!

The Book Project are collecting fiction and non-fiction and any age range from 0-14, they just kindly ask that books are in good condition, and they cannot use:

  • Used or incomplete sticker, colouring or craft books;
  • Academic books, dictionaries or 11+ practice papers;
  • Foreign language books;
  • Religious books; 
  • Ex library books;  
  • Adult books; or
  • Tatty, damaged, scribbled in or yellowed books.
