Chestnut Tree House is the New Charity Partner for World of Books

CH 10 1By Admin

We’re delighted to announce that Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice will be our charity partner for the remainder of 2013.

Through this partnership, we will be donating 10p for every book sold for the rest of this year. The whole team will also be involved in other fundraising events and keeping you right up to date with our progress so far.

Chestnut Tree House provides vital care for children with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses as well as offering support for their families. On a recent visit to the House, we were blown away by the amazing facilities on offer and humbled by the compassion shown in very difficult circumstances. But in order to keep up their fantastic work, the charity is almost entirely dependent on public donations.

This is just one of the reasons why we decided to help – even if only a little.

Over the coming months we will be showcasing Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice, their stories and also how your efforts have helped to support this amazing cause.

So How Does it all Work?

SwimmingAs mentioned, we will be donating a shiny 10 pence piece for every book we sell on Our great prices will be unaffected, so there won’t be a negative impact for our customers – just a positive one for Chestnut Tree House. Indeed we are back-dating donations to the beginning of July, ensuring Chestnut Tree House enjoy six full months of support from World of Books.

Better still, if you visit the site through we will donate a further 20 pence for every book you buy. We wanted to provide Chestnut Tree House with an opportunity to engage their supporters and boost donations, so this was the perfect solution.

We believe that it is the simplest and most interactive way of providing donations. Our intention is simply to get all of our customers involved, grow awareness and help a great cause to continue their fantastic work.

And Finally, a Quick Word from Chestnut Tree House

‘We are so grateful for the fantastic support from World of Books and look forward to our charity partnership together. They have shown resourcefulness and commitment to help us provide our specialist care for local children with life limiting illnesses and their families. , We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for their help and support.” – Sarah Arnold, Corporate Fundraising Manager, Chestnut Tree House.
