On Monday 5th July myself and Mr Spurgeon made our 3rd trip to Canterbury, Kent to take many more boxes of old textbooks and reading books to Books2Africa. It was the final trip in our trusty old minibus as the new one was delivered the next day.
As always it was a pleasure to visit and the team there were most grateful. We were shown around various areas of the centre and it was very busy as they now try to catch up on the backlog of sorting donations and preparing shipments caused by the pandemic and The Suez Canal block.
We look forward to finding out in the future where our textbooks end up and as always I will keep you updated.
Brief information below for anybody who missed previous editions of PressTales.
Books2Africa was founded in 2012 by 4 African students at the University of Kent as a student project (they collected more than 11,000 books in their first year and stored them in their student flat) and they became a UK registered charity in 2013.
This small charity deserves recognition for their work and if you are interested in volunteering or donating then please find more information on their website books2africa.org.
