The Snug Bookshop and Cafe

I want to make my Bookshop a welcoming space for everyone and I'm hoping to raise 50% of the total cost of installing an Accessible Toilet.

We did it
On 12th November 2018 we successfully raised £1,885 with 11 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target

By raising more money through donations it means that we can put more money into our school's project budget or our Talking Café and groups held on behalf of MIND. 




Why open a bookshop?


It has been my dream ever since I was a little to open a bookshop. I was that kid with their head always stuck in a book and adventuring to new worlds and magical places... and there is nothing wrong with that!  Being a librarian for 8 years fuelled my once dismissed dream of owning  my own bookshop and I can't believe that I am almost there. We've been mucking in and doing as much of the refurbishment ourselves, but converting the toilet into a bigger, more accessible space is going to be more complex and therefore a little more expensive. 


 


I won't post any snaps of the toilet as it looks now because it is... well... quite nasty looking.
