Thanks for taking the time to visit our Just Giving page.

We are thrilled to be back in the gorgeous new Library space, which friends of the SPL and poetry have made possible.

We still have a shortfall of £40,000, which will have an impact on our work next year. Will you help us to raise £10,000 of that sum through Just Giving?

Thanks to donors, we have passed the halfway mark. Please help us reach our goal by donating £5 or more today.

Our new spaces 

  • allow noisy and silent activities to take place at the same time
  • make room for more books, pamphlets and audio
  • provide comfortable seating for toddlers, teens and third agers
  • enable us to develop the resources and training that take poetry all over Scotland, from schools to care homes, and into the airwaves, sending poetry out across the world.

Donating through Just Giving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to us.
