A love of reading won’t just keep you entertained this Christmas — it could also help a good cause near you.
Publisher Penguin Random House UK has come together with online retailer Bookshop.org and Neighbourly, one of the UK’s first B Corporations, to support grassroots good causes across the country, including food banks, homeless shelters, and community centres.
Under this new initiative, ever time a member of the public buys one of a specially curated list of Penguin books via Bookshop.org, a copy will be automatically donated to an isolated or vulnerable person.
The campaign will run between Monday 16 November and Monday 21 December 2020.
