We Need Your Help… to find the Snug a new home
As you know, we lost the roof to our bookshop building during Storm Arwen, and the rain that came a few days later with Storm Brendan devastated the shop, and a great deal of stock. We are having to start again and find a new building – but we need help because it has all had such an impact on the business financially. There are numerous ways to help us at this time. You can help by sharing our appeal, telling our story or leaving a comment. We are still trading online, taking bookings for School Book fairs and our Fill a Bookshelf scheme is still live. Our recent crowdfunder raised just over £7,000 but we are still a little short of our goal of £10,000 so we shall be doing a Table top sale and a raffle in early June to enable us to purchase the shop fittings.
We’ve had to put our Author events and bookclub online again since moving out of the building. If you would like to sign up for our newsletter, please send a message via the contacts page with your email. We send one email a month, packed full of reviews news and event updates.
Can you buy a child a book?
Children need books – at any age. With the current COVID-19 measures in place Local School libraries are having to quarantine books, and manage on limited stock availability, with ever decreasing funds left to provide quality, engaging and up to date reading material.
In 2019 we launched our Fill a Bookshelf scheme, to ask customers to consider purchasing a book to be donated to a local school. In 2020 we are brought it back, to ensure that every child can find a book that grabs their attention.
All children need to read books that inspire and captivate them, but most importantly they need books in which they feel they are represented.
If you are able to support our Fill a Bookshelf scheme, please pop into the bookshop or order a book on our website, fill in the Coupon Code FAB21 and put ‘FAB School’ into the Order notes box. If you can’t find a book that you would like to buy for donation to a school you can always buy a National Book Token instead. Literacy levels in Bridgwater are below the national average, and the Sedgemoor area has a very high proportion of disadvantaged children, so schemes like ours are even more important for children in the local area.
By buying a book for a local school or a local child, you are also supporting our bookshop; a local independent small business. Your purchase means that we will be able to survive into 2022 and continue working with schools, organising author visits and enthusiastically promoting a passion for reading to all ages.
This month, we are focusing on getting as many books into the hands of children that need them most. We are supporting primary schools, the food bank and Children in Care to ensure that all children have at least one book in their home, of their own. Please support if you can.
We Are Still Here For You!
