The BookTrust Christmas appeal

The BookTrust Christmas appeal raises money to send surprise festive book parcels to children who are vulnerable or in care.

This year, it’s even more vital to support children who may not be looking forward to Christmas. And so we plan to give out more parcels than ever before and to reach 16,000 children – that’s 1,750 more than last year. Half will be sent to children in care who may be spending their first Christmas away from their families, and the other half will be given out through community foodbanks to children in families facing challenging circumstances. Donate £10 to send one book parcel to one child. Any additional funds raised by the appeal will support our work with children through the year.
