We’re donating new books to the Packed With Hope campaign, run by two small independent publishers down in the South-West, and we’re inviting our customers to get involved.
Little Toller and Blue Moose Books are aiming to fill 10,000 backpacks for displaced Ukrainian child refugees. Starting with storybooks, every one of the backpacks will be filled with a selection of items that are both comforting and essential, such as head torches, notepads, colouring pencils, toothbrushes, puzzles, playing cards, activity books, bags of marbles, hot water bottles, socks, hats and scarfs, reusable drinking bottles, and many other much-needed things.
We’re inviting customers to purchase a children’s book to donate to the campaign next time you’re in the shop. We’ll give you a 30% discount on the RRP of the book, and we will match all donations received. We’ll be accepting purchases until the end of Saturday 26th March and sending all the books down to Dorset on Monday 28th March.
If you’re not local to the shop, or can’t get down here before the 26th, you can also support this brilliant campaign via their crowdfunder here.
