The Book Trade Charity 2020 Appeal – Help Us Open Doors!

Please help The Book Trade Charity (BTBS) to open doors – by building affordable housing for new entrants to the book trade and giving them a crucial start in their careers.

The Book Trade Charity delivers vital support to people in the book trade who are in need. For those starting out in publishing, it has embarked on a large building project to provide affordable accommodation. You can help us now by sponsoring MyRide London 100 mile cycle in aid of the Book Trade Charity 2020 Appeal!

For more than 180 years, The Book Trade Charity has provided invaluable assistance across a range of issues to those who have worked or seek to work in any part of the book industry. The Charity’s quiet, steady support has been life-changing for many.

The Book Trade Charity (BTBS) is a small charity, with a turnover of £700,000 per year.  Donations of any size are therefore particularly welcome to help us continue supporting colleagues in need, and offering assistance to the next generation who face financial barriers to entry in to the industry. Committing to a regular monthly, quarterly or annual donation will help us to budget for the constant, and growing, demands on our limited resources.
