Chil­dren’s li­brary at char­ity shop

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A CHAR­ITY shop has ex­tended its good­will to young cus­tomers by of­fer­ing chil­dren use of a free li­brary.

All Aboard, in Ruis­lip High Street, is invit­ing chil­dren and teenagers to share its un­wanted books and take out other sec­ond­hand books that catch their eye.

Re­tail project man­ager Claire McEwan, said: “Our first day went re­ally well with lots of books be­ing taken and we are now in need of more for oth­ers to take and en­joy.

“We get so many chil­dren’s books do­nated, some of which we are un­able to sell for one rea­son or an­other, so we de­cided to give them away and en­cour­age young minds to read.

“It’s been such a fun project. If it’s a suc­cess here in Ruis­lip we would like to see one in ev­ery All Aboard shop, of which there are 18 across Lon­don and one in Manch­ester,” she said.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call the Ruis­lip shop on 01895 639 797.

All Aboard helps more than 50 UK char­i­ties in­clud­ing Ovar­ian Can­cer Ac­tion, Great Or­mond Street Hos­pi­tal, Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port and Barts Char­ity.
