Campaign to fund books for children launched by Scottish Book Trust
28 October 2021
National charity Scottish Book Trust has
launched a major fundraising campaign, backed by The
Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson and
illustrator Axel Scheffler, to drive its new
ambition of ensuring everyone in Scotland has access to books and
that no one misses out on the many lifelong benefits this brings.
Since the pandemic, the charity has been overwhelmed by increasing
demand for its vital work to support vulnerable children and
Books bring families together, comfort children and help them do
well in school. They unlock creativity, support employability, and
improve mental health and wellbeing. Without books, families are
missing out. Having access to books makes a huge difference to
children every day.
