Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The charity running the BOOKS Plus shops seeks to enhance the caring environment for patients, visitors and staff through the establishment and running of attractive, encouraging and caring retail outlets of Christian and general interest books, and related goods. BOOKS Plus in Cardiff was severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic which resulted in a delayed relocation from Unit 6 to 8 and furthermore the shop being kept closed for a year longer than all the other shops at the concourse.

BOOKS Plus Cardiff has been able to survive this period and begin to re-establish itself through careful use of its reserves as well as receiving some very generous individual donations in July. The shop will celebrate its 25th anniversary in June 2024. In order to ensure the shop can fully re-establish to operate and serve the hospital for the rest of the decade on a sound footing the charity is fundraising to replenish its reserves and give time for the shop to adjust to upcoming rent increases.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
