Books & Bakes

Afternoon Tea

Host a Books & Bakes event

Bring family and friends together to fundraise and celebrate the importance of reading with a National Literacy Trust Books & Bakes event. It is really simple to host and we will be on hand to support you from start to finish! Why not share your favourite stories and swap books with your guests? Download our fundraising guide to help you prepare. We also have a poster to advertise your event and some bunting to download to make the event really special!

If you would like to fundraise, please get in touch and tell us what you are planning. You could sell your bakes, or ask guests to pay an entry fee to raise money. We can send you everything you need to make your event a success including balloons and collection boxes.

Or fancy a sophisticated evening with friends? Why not host a Books & Bubbles event? Get your friends together to chat about your favourite books over a glass (or two!) of bubbly. 

We would love to know how your event goes, so please take lots of pictures and share them on social media using the hashtag #BooksAndBakes. Don’t forget to tag @literacy_trust on Twitter or Instagram!

After your Books & Bakes event, there are a number of ways to get the money to us. You can make a donation on our website, or send a cheque, made payable to National Literacy Trust, to 68 South Lambeth Road, London, SW8 1RL.
