A few things have changed (for the better) and others may have moved around a bit. You can browse our library here, log in to your library membership account here or join here. If you get stuck give us a ring on 01635 299 771.
First marathon? A champion cake baker? Sponsored silence for a talkative family member?
Let your imagination fly and help Living Paintings by fundraising for us. Our fundraising team is on hand to help and encourage you every step of the way.
You could join one of our organised events or set up your own challenge – check out the ideas below to get started.
Whatever your special occasion, use it to support us by asking friends and family to make a donation instead of – or as well as – buying you a gift. To set up a fundraising page online, find us on Justgiving and Virgin Money Giving.
Blind library member Ted ran a mile a day for 26 days to raise money for Living Paintings, while Alison cycled 26 miles. What challenge could you set yourself to support more blind and partially sighted library members like Ted?
Annabel, whose brother Monty is a library member, made and sold pom poms at her school fair to raise funds for us. What could you make?
Whether it’s cup cakes, flapjack or carrot cake, have fun and try out your baking skills with a cake sale. You could take your tasty treats into school, work or invite friends over.
Have a paper plane competition. Ask if you can use the school hall, and charge a small entrance fee. You can have all sorts of different classes, like furthest distance flown, fly the plane through the hoop, or most unusual design.
Why not have a dress-up day at school or work? Ask everyone to pay £1 to dress up as their favourite character from a Touch to See book.
