Get involved

With Doorstep Library, a little generosity goes a long way. £8 provides a visit to a child, £100 gives a term’s worth of Doorstep visits, or £300 provides a year’s worth of reading for one of our children.  Sign up to give regular donations and receive a copy of our very own children’s book, The Bugman’s Great Escape.

Involve your Company

Corporate involvement has the potential to make a big impact on our families in many ways, and we are very keen to look for businesses prepared to support us.

Here are some of the ways your company could make a difference to our charity and the families we support:

  • Volunteering and fundraising
  • Payroll giving
  • Gifts in kind
  • Access to expertise
  • Contacts sharing



The great thing about fundraising is that not only does it inspire multiple contributions, but it helps spread our name and raise our profile. Here are some examples of common (and not-so-common) ways to contribute:

  • Organise your own event: a book swap for example. Pub quizzes and dinner parties are other popular fundraising events
  • If you’re a member of a rotary club or local WI, perhaps you could suggest us as a charity to support
  • It is increasingly popular to offer people the option to donate to charity instead of receiving birthday or wedding presents
  • Many people and organisations make a Christmas charity donation instead of sending Christmas cards
  • Many people offer the option of a donation to charity instead of flowers at a funeral, or as part of their will
  • Get sponsorship for doing something challenging, such as a marathon or skydive.

If you would like advice or help with any fundraising idea, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
