Volunteer for us

Regular and occasional volunteers are a vital source of support at our Book HQ in North Kensington (W10), where they sort and box books in readiness for distribution to settings throughout London. A typical session may involve sorting donated books by age and stage, weeding out the tatty ones, sorting foreign language books or perhaps helping to repaint one of our Pop Up Book Huts.

If you are interested in volunteering with your organisation, please email If you are interested in volunteering as an individual, please complete the form opposite. We will send you details of future book sorting sessions.

We would also love to hear from potential volunteers that are too far from our west London premises to attend one of our book sorting events and that would like to support us in other ways. Complete the form opposite and let us know a little bit about you. We always welcome volunteer drivers, administrative support, fundraisers, designers, speakers and advocates. If you are passionate about helping us to gift over 100k books to children next year please do get in touch!

Fundraise for us

It costs just £162 for us to gift 650 gently used books to children within an average sized primary school. This equates to £10.20 per class, or merely £0.34 for every child to receive an equivalent of 1.5 books.

If you or your organisation can fundraise on our behalf, we would be hugely grateful!

We can provide fundraising ideas, resources, promotional support and potentially even volunteers. Email for further information.

Thank you to our supporters

We would like to say thank you to every organisation that has supported us to date, whether financially or in kind. We are run entirely by volunteers and really appreciate all corporate support.
