Donate a book by 17 March

Thank you to the many of you who’ve donated books, so far we have collected over 100 books. But there is still time to close the ‘book gap’. We are holding a book drive to support The Children’s Book Project ‘get books into bedrooms’. You have until 17 March to bring books in good condition:
  • Sussex Place (B Wing)
  • 15-17, HWM (1st floor)
  • Plowden, Andrew Centre
  • Lorne Close
  • Sammy Ofer Centre (SO.W4.04)

Across London and the UK one in four disadvantaged children owns fewer than 10 books, whilst one in eight doesn’t have any. Not a single book. This has an impact not only on academic outcomes but also on wellbeing and emotional development. The Children’s Book Project tackles this ‘book gap’ by collecting donations of books and gifting them to London children who have few or no books at all. 

If you have any questions please contact contact Zeynep Altun. We’ll keep you updated you on the collection in a future edition of Life@LBS.
