Cotswold Book Room – Advent Gift of Reading

We are delighted to work alongside The Cotswold Book Room in Wotton-Under-Edge.

If you haven’t visited, we would recommend it! The owners Cathy and Gideon will inspire you with their knowledge of the wonderful choice of books that they stock and if they haven’t got the one you would like, they are sure to be able to order it for you.

The Cotswold Book Room have very kindly launched the Advent Gift of Reading 2021.

Please would you consider buying a book for a child who has little access to books at home? Together we want to share the joy of books at Christmas.

How it works:

You kindly donate £6.99 (or any amount you feel appropriate)

The Cotswold Book Room purchase, and Christmas wrap a book on your behalf.

Read With Me distribute the wrapped books to children that have been identified as most in need, in the schools we work with in and around Gloucester.

We say a massive thank you to you for helping spread the joy of reading.

For every 3 books purchased The Cotswold Book Room will add in an extra book.

Last year The Cotswold Book Room were able to give a total of 186 books. The children were blown away that people cared enough to give them such a lovely present, and that it was theirs to keep.

How to donate:

1. Pop into the shop and pay card/cash/cheque.

2. Get in touch: Email , phone the shop 01453 843140, or message through their social media platforms, and they will then raise an invoice so you can do an online payment.
