Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to READ International. Sign up here to donate to READ via Payroll Giving.

Remember to Gift Aid it!

Gift Aid provides a great opportunity for you to increase the value of your donation to READ International. Provided you are a UK taxpayer, and have paid an amount of income or capital gains tax equal to the amount we can reclaim from HM Revenue and Customs (currently 25p in every £1), then you are eligible for the Gift Aid scheme.




We currently have 35 book donation bins in 7 London boroughs in partnership with waste disposal company Veolia and ethical book-sellers Better World Books. We no longer bring donated books from the UK  to our libraries in Tanzania but any books collected are sold online to generate funds to purchase new books or are recycled, ensuring nothing goes to landfill!

Our Book Bins are in Westminster, Lambeth, Kingston, Tower Hamlets, Haringey, Southwark and Richmond.  A bin can also be found at Cambridge University.
