Join a fundraising challenge

Sign up to walk, run or cycle for Scottish Book Trust, in events such as:

'I love walking for my physical and mental health and the Kiltwalk seemed like the perfect opportunity to set myself a challenge and spend more time with my friends in the process. There are four of us doing the walk together (for different charities). I chose Scottish Book Trust because I feel very strongly about promoting reading for pleasure. I've loved reading since I was very young and still get excited by the possibilities that a book can bring. My younger daughter (age 6) has just reached the stage where she can read longer books on her own and it's heartwarming to see how eager she is to sit and lose herself in a story. I would love every child to have that experience so I'm very pleased to be supporting Scottish Book Trust to continue the great programmes that it offers.'

Host your own community fundraiser

Get creative with your fundraising and organise an event that works for you:

Louisa, a writer and supporter of Scottish Book Trust, held her own bookshop dash to celebrate the launch of her new children’s book, Rory and the Snack Dragons. Visiting 22 bookshops and libraries in 22 hours, Louisa raised a brilliant £210 for Scottish Book Trust.

Louisa said: ‘We had such fun on our bookshop tour and were made so welcome, and it was great to feel that we were able to raise a little bit for Scottish Book Trust – we benefited so much from Bookbug and Scottish Book Trust projects as a young family.’
