Raising enough money to provide both Edgware locations of The Little Local Book Hub with weatherproof outdoor storage.

We're still collecting donations

On the 8th October 2020 we'd raised £150 with 13 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

During the coronavirus lockdown of 2020, when schools, libraries and shops were closed, Monique put a box of books on her driveway in Stanmore, NW London for people to swap.

Sarah soon decided to do the same in nearby Edgware, and The Little Local Book Hub was born.  Dozens more volunteers joined over the next few months, and the project spread as far as Ipswich, Gloucester and Cornwall, plus a second Hub in a different part of Edgware, run by Natasha Wise.

The response from their local communities has been incredible, with people saying that it really kept them going when the world was shut down.

Although it was initially a lockdown project, with the support of our community in Edgware we would love to continue, albeit in a smaller way.  To do this, we would like to raise money to provide both the Edgware Hubs with a permanent, weatherproof container.
