Double the Christmas spirit!

Please help us fill this advent calendar, and our actual audio library, with 48 exciting new books that our members will cherish this Christmas and for years to come.

We are delighted to be one of the charities chosen by The Big Give for their Christmas Challenge this year. This is the biggest match funding event in the UK and raises millions of pounds for charity.

We are hoping to raise £12,000 to buy 48 new books to add to our collection. Click here to see a list of titles…

Kings Access Technology

We are hugely grateful to Kings Access Technology, who provide our Solo and Sonic memory stick players, for pledging to match the first £3,000 of donations we receive for this Challenge. This means the first £3,000 on donations will be matched, pound for pound, by Kings.

The Reed Foundation UK

We are excited and thankful to the Reed Foundation for allocating £1,500 in match funding to support our campaign.

The Challenge runs from 1st to 8th December 2020, collecting online donations which must be made on the Big Give website.

All online donations, however large or small, will help us fill our advent calendar, and our real library, with some wonderful new books. And your donation will be worth double thanks to Kings and the Reed Foundation.

Click here to donate

Give all our members the perfect present for booklovers this Christmas. Thank you for your support.

P.S. If you donate £250 you can have a dedication recorded at the start of one of the books! You can choose from the titles still available when your donation has been made and Calibre Audio have been notified.
