Give in memory

Books often play an enormous role in people's lives, as they are powerful objects with the ability to provide escapism, comfort and make us laugh or cry. A love of reading can define a person's sense of self, and therefore giving a donation in memory can be a really meaningful way to remember or pay tribute to a loved one who has passed away.

Giving in memory will help us to give a new generation the gift of reading.



Giving a gift in memory of a loved one who took great pleasure in reading can be a lovely way to help their memory live on and to give a new generation the opportunity to discover the joys and experience the benefits of reading.
