BookTrust Christmas appeal

Last year, thanks to your generous donations, we were able to make over 11,500 children feel remembered and special with a festive book parcel.

Christmas Appeal gift

This Christmas...

The BookTrust Christmas appeal will be back in 2019. 

In the meantime, you can still support us and help to get books to more children who need us the most.

A love of books changes lives

Get children reading

More about what we do and why

The Letterbox Club

The Letterbox Club

The Letterbox Club aims to inspire a love of reading and engagement with numeracy in children aged 3-13 who are looked-after. They are enrolled by local authorities and schools, and receive monthly parcels of books and educational materials.

Why reading matters

How we make a difference

BookTrust supports children and families to experience the joy of reading and its associated benefits through our programmes and activities.

How to support us

Help us get families reading

A love of books changes lives. Children who read for pleasure are likely to do better at school, as well as be more socially, culturally and emotionally prepared for life.
