Book Scheme Co-ordinator

  • VO97728


The NSPCC's bookshelf scheme has raised more than £7,000 for the children's charity in the last four years in Cumbria, and we are looking for new volunteer co-ordinators to help continue the good work across Scotland.

The simple bookshelf and honesty box scheme began as a pilot in 2018 organised by NSPCC community fundraising manager Sandra Jones, before being extended across multiple areas as its success grew.

"It's been such a success, we're not just looking for book donations, but also seeking new volunteers who can spare two or three hours each month to help us co-ordinate new book schemes. We're also looking to engage with local organisations and communities to create new pop up book schemes, so if you know anyone who might be interested or be able to help, I'd love to hear from you".

These funds will be used to support NSPCC's work in Scotland, helping protect Children from abuse and neglect.
