How to Sponsor a Talking Book
To make each new Talking Book we need to raise:
- £2,500 for an adult book
- £1,500 for a children’s book
Step 1: Choose whether you want to sponsor an adult or a children's book.
Step 2: Register your interest and we'll provide you with more information, fundraising ideas and support to help reach your goal.
Step 3: Once you've reached your goal, your Talking Book is produced! A personal dedication can be added to your book, which will be part of the Talking Book forever.
If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected] or call us on 0303 123 9999 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).
