Resource Pack Books Change Children’s Lives

With our very first delivery of a bookcase came a request for books that would help the playworkers in the refuge help the children deal with their emotions and the difficult situation they found themselves in. From this request came the set of books and toys. All these resources are purchased new for each refuge with money kindly donated by lovely generous people like yourself.

Each book has a sticker with the name of the person who donated the money for it and a reminder to keep it safe. This set is constantly evolving as we find new books or titles go out of print. Most cost about £5.99-7.99 each with only the 2 workbooks being £17.99 but these 2 books are so worth the money.

The children in Anglesey came up with lovely artwork after a group session with The Huge Bag of Worries by Virginia Ironside which is a title loved by children and adults alike.  We have since added the 2 Worry Monsters Wilma and Wilbur to the set to be used alongside this book who always get great feedback from the support staff.

Inspired to buy a book and/or toy for a refuge? Or as a gift for someone this Christmas? We can send a card explaining the gift for you to give to your loved one.

You can buy a book or two or more by clicking on the donate button.  This will take you through to PayPal where you can donate.  Please add a note telling us which books you would like us to buy on your behalf.  If you would like us to email you a thank you then please click the box that will add your email address.  Alternatively contact us by phone, email or even snailmail!  – we’d love to hear from you.
