Give a child the gift of reading

8th December 2021

Give a child the gift of reading this Christmas.

Reading is the strongest indicator of a child’s future success in life. Unfortunately, COVID  has accelerated educational inequality at an alarming rate and our services are now needed more than ever. Right now there are many children waiting for a Doorstep Library volunteer’s visit. Help improve a child’s future –  support our Give a Child the Gift of Reading campaign today.


This Christmas we have partnered with the amazing London-based illustrator Holly Thomas.  Holly has produced fun and emotive illustrations for charities like Water Aid, Age UK, Unicef and Mind.  This year she chose Doorstep Library as a charity whose mission is close to her heart.  The three illustrations Holly has created show the magic that the gift of reading can bring– helping every child to experience the world of imagination.  We want to say a huge thank you to Holly for her time in creating these beautiful illustrations for Doorstep Library.
