Fast take up

According to a Freedom of Information request in 2013 there were 24,372 schools in England and Wales.

In less than 3 days from launch the website has been contacted by over 300 schools (over 1% of the total in England and Wales) who are in desperate need of books for both their libraries and classes, and there is no sign of this stopping with several contacts each hour.

The fact that this is in the half-term holidays for the majority of schools shows the dedication of the staff at schools to try and find those extra resources that they need and that the children deserve which the government keeps cutting year on year.

So please, if you have any books you can donate search for a school on the map near you and arrange a delivery of those surplus books.
