LoveReading exists because reading matters, and books change lives.

It's well-documented that reading for pleasure, and improving reading standards, has a huge impact on children's wellbeing, academic achievements, and future success.

But the sad truth is, cuts to school funding means many children don't have access to well-stocked libraries. Many don't get to experience the magic of reading that may well have made you a reader for life.

As a result, LoveReading has created a way to redress that shortfall; an easy way for you to share the magic of reading through supporting a school in your local community - simply buy books through our bookstore, a platform with social purpose.

As a book buyer on LoveReading or LoveReading4Kids 25% of your basket can be donated to a school close to your heart at checkout. Where the shopper does not have an affinity with a school, 10% of their purchase is put into a fund for schools in need and all state funded schools in the UK are all eligible to apply for our Funding Scheme. Unfortunately the scheme is massively oversubscribed, and we are unable to fulfil all of these applications.

So you can donate here, as an individual or on behalf of an organisation, and decide whether you would like your donation to go to a school in your community or a school close to your heart. Or, choose for your donation to go to our Funding Scheme. Every penny donated will go directly to schools, for them to buy books for their students. Thank you for your support. Our schools thank you. Our children thank you. We thank you.
