Weʼve raised £50 to add some very special books to the shelves of all of the Women's Refuges in Cornwall.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We run the Edge of the World Bookshop in Penzance and we are absolutely passionate about books. Each year we give away books to good causes and this year we wanted to focus on women's refuges after a lockdown that saw worrying spikes in violence in the home. We are creating mini-libraries for each of the Women's Refuges in Cornwall. We know the power of books to heal, entertain and empower. We regularly come across books that are so special we want to make sure as many people as possible have access to them, not only those who can afford the cover price. Alongside the ones we are giving you can add to the pile too so that we have a really meaningful selection of inspiring and uplifting books to be shared and enjoyed.
We are also very keen to hear your recommendations of books you would love to see included too.

Hi Rachel,Just browsing the Edge of the World site and came across your amazing initiative. It's easy to forget that people need food for their minds as well as bodies. I hope you reach your goal.
Great people make things happen
