Books for Foodbanks


Recent months have seen the number of families using foodbanks rise significantly. Covid 19 has seen people placed on furlough and jobs disappear, with finances becoming increasingly strained to live day to day.

As a team of Independent Usborne Organisers we have seen the demand for books to support home schooling during lockdown increase massively and we see books as an essential need, just like food.  Having access to books not only improves literacy but has positive benefits to mental wellbeing too.  Children are able to go on adventures, visit new countries and learn essential life skills, all from the pages of a book. 

We have collectively decided to raise funds to enable our local foodbanks to provide books to the families who rely on them each week and month. 

We are planning to support:

Fiona Wilkes - Kingston Upon Thames

Michelle Dalby - Epsom & Ewell

Rebecca Lawrance - West Cheshire

Sylvia Gilby - Taunton

as well as hopefully Sutton, Elmbridge, Wimbledon & Wandsworth.

Please help us, help our communities by giving any amount you can. You'll be helping develop the next generation of teachers, scientists, engineers and business leaders.

Thank you

NB - When you make a donation please ensure you select the person who referred you so your donation finds it's way to the correct foodbank.
Thank you
