Gift a BookVoucher


Opening a new book is one of the greatest excitements and pleasures for any child – but sadly not every child has the chance to enjoy the wonderful books we often take for granted. That’s why some years ago we launched our ‘Gift a Book’ scheme – this will be the seventh year we’ve run it. Once again we’ll be teaming up with the brilliant charities Chelwood Food Bank Plus and Salfords Women’s Refuge so that even children in the most difficult circumstances can wake up to find a book in their stocking.

We know that this Christmas is going to be especially tough on the families we are trying to help so please dig deep so the scheme can continue to go from strength to strength. Your generosity in previous years has been truly amazing but with your help we’re hoping to make this year our best ever!

Either choose a book in store – or as ask us to choose one with you – and pay at the till as you would with any other book, or make a donation below. Once you’ve chosen a book or made a donation the magic Simply Books Bookshop Elves will take your gift, wrap it up and send it to its new home, ready to be opened and treasured on Christmas Day!

The closing date for making donations this year will be Saturday 16th December.
