The Gift of Reading

Book-lovers everywhere appreciate what reading has given them.

Sadly, across the UK, one in seven children does not have any books at all, nor are they likely to receive any for Christmas.

You can give them the Gift of Reading. By donating to the National Literacy Trust, you could give a disadvantaged child a book of their own for the very first time.

Buy the Gift of Reading for yourself or a loved one this Christmas and we will send you or them one of our exclusive Christmas cards.

This year, you can choose from our popular Suzy Goose design by Petr Horacek from 2013, or The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, which celebrates our successful Books about Town campaign from earlier this year.

A gift of £7 means a child could choose a book of their own to keep, which for many will be the first they ever own.

A gift of £20 could fund all three books we give to each child who takes part in our reading project.

A gift of £60 means we could give three children three books each to keep.

Fill in our form if you would like to give in another person’s name, so that we can send them our Christmas card. Otherwise donate now to receive a card to your own address, and enter “GIFT” under “Donation code”. The cards will be sent out from 1 December.
