Weʼre raising £2,000 to provide exciting new books from the Spark! Children's Book Awards for disadvantaged children in Kingston and Richmond.
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.
The Spark! Book Awards will enable children to decide their favourite new book in three categories and to hear from the authors. It is an event taking place in Kingston and Richmond over the next six months
Schools can provide some access to these books but money is tight. Parents, who can, are often likely to wish to purchase the shortlisted titles for their children but this will not be possible in many homes. This fund will enable us to provide additional copies of the books for disadvantaged children in Spark! schools to read, and keep and to ensure that they too feel part of this initiative across our two boroughs.
We have set our target at £2000 but the more money we raise the more children we can reach and build their enthusiasm for reading - which will be, for many, a key to further academic success.
Over sixty schools have signed up to be part of these awards and we want to help them to help pupils with the gift of a book and the opportunity to feel part of this borough wide community event.

Great idea to support children and families who are not able to purchase their own copy of the books themselves
