Children's Book Project

We have partnered with our wonderful friends over at the Children's Book Project to help collect pre-loved children's books to those in need. 

Thousands of children grow up in homes with very few books of their own, sometimes none at all. They have fewer opportunities to lose themselves in a story, for shared reading with a parent and to discover the world.


We want your pre-loved children's books. You can donate instore by droping them in the massive dump bin. Or if you can't make it in drop us an email and we can try arrange to collect them! Ensuring that they are put straight into the hands of the children that need them most.

STOP BOOK WASTE AND CHANGE LIVES.
