Fundraise for us at your book club

Book group

We’re asking book clubs around the country to get together and raise money to help change a child’s life story.

Win an author visit

Every book club that raises over £200 before 1 March 2019 will be entered into a draw for the chance to win a visit to their book club from a bestselling author:

  • Adele Parks is the author of 17 Sunday Times bestsellers, with over 3 million copies sold in the UK, and is in the top 1% of most-borrowed library authors. Her latest novel, I Invited Her In, was published in September.
  • Dorothy Koomson is the award-winning author of 14 novels including My Best Friend's Girl, The Ice Cream Girls and The Brighton Mermaid.
  • Milly Johnson is an award-winning author of feelgood fiction. She has written 15 bestselling novels with over two million sales worldwide.

Book clubs could also win a wine-tasting event.

Fundraising

  • £200 can help give eight parents with low literacy skills themselves the support they need to help develop their children’s reading at home
  • £200 can help us give 60 children their very first book
