Thank you so much to Acorn Book Club for these great books that you have sent us. We all really appreciate your donation.
Acorn Book Club is a charity that accepts donations of pre-loved children’s books from members of the general public and redistributes them to primary school libraries and other organisations that work with young children.
They were founded in 2018 and in that time have donated over 53,000 books that may otherwise be sitting on bookshelves throughout homes in South East London.
They are almost entirely funded by The Acorn Group – a group of estate agents that encompasses Acorn, John Payne and Langford Russell – and each high street branch of the group acts as a drop off point for donated books. The books are then collected and delivered to head office in Bromley for sorting. We also have a book donation hub at Ruxley Manor Garden Centre in Sidcup which receives 100s of book donations every week.
The selected books are then donated to schools that need them – giving books that were outgrown and unused a new lease of life.
