Charity risk barometer
Our Charity Risk Barometer 2019 uncovers key challenges facing charities, helps you capitalise on opportunities and reap major rewards.
Moorland Road Community library is at the heart of its community, run for and by local residents to inspire and support a lifelong love of books and reading. It offers a free service to a diverse community, including families where buying books is sometimes simply not an option. They aim to encourage older people in their community to meet and share books through book clubs.
The £1,000 donation from Ecclesiastical will enable the library to invest in new books for children, young people and adults as part of a permanent collection in the library. With a better selection of more modern titles, the library can make sure they have copies of the well-loved favourites that will go out on loan regularly. When their shelves are refreshed with new book-titles, families are encouraged to visit again and again.
This award will help the library to demonstrate their passion for the local library by reinvesting positivity and energy through their volunteers, making the community library a vibrant and exciting project for today and well into the future.
