StorySenders Update - June 2013

Last week we made our final donation of new children's books to a women's refuge in the South of England, housing around a dozen young children and pre-schoolers - see the June 2013 tab/page, above.

Thank you all for your contributions and interest over the past year - however, due to work commitments plus young children ourselves, StorySenders is being 'shelved' for the time being with no projects or donations planned for the foreseeable future.  Thank you again - your support has been both amazing and humbling in equal measure - do get in touch if you have any other queries or comments.

Best wishes,

Our Christmas donations are now complete!
We managed to donate to three refuges in the North and South of England, completing our last handover just this week (see 'Christmas Donations' and 'Our StorySenders' tabs, above).

Thank you for your contributions to this - you have helped to share the Christmas spirit with your generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness by helping those in less fortunate circumstances.  There is a small remainder of funds which we will address in the New Year - rest assured it will go towards its intended purpose.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from StorySenders.

We are now asking for any further contributions for our Christmas Donations.  If you would like to become a StorySender and help us to provide new books for children housed in refuges over the Christmas period, please visit this page - Nickel Books.

We will be collecting funds up until the second weekend in December and the books will then be chosen and handed over in person to the refuges - this time in both the North and South of England.  The mothers at the refuges will be given the books to share and give to their children over the festive season themselves, so that the books are not only spreading a little bit of joy but will ease the burden a little for those already on restricted budgets.

Any queries, please get in touch - thank you in advance for your support!
