Prospero's Project is our name for the projects we undertake as a Social Enterprise. Currently, our focus is on providing new books for foodbanks to provide clients. We are also working with the Ringmere Academy to support their library.

The first stockings sold in late September (the Christmas season starting early!). Sales continued through the season and on 27 December we were pleased to have raised £2,644.65 – exceeding our goal of £2,500.

Gifts Given

With funds in the bank, we were able to give generous donations of books to foodbanks in Hailsham and Eastbourne, as well as to the library at Ringmer Academy. We spent £2,239.05 on 893 volumes in December, reserving some funds for further donations in 2018.

Feedback

Both the Ringmer Academy and the two foodbanks were delighted by the books we were able to supply.

“Thank you so much for the amazing selection of books supplied for Christmas.  These were incredibly appeciated and I know made a number of people very happy.” (Howard Wardle – Eastbourne Foodbank).

“Our new books are fabulous! I have been through them with some students this lunchtime and they got a fantastic reaction –already have a list of students who are going to take a number of the books out next week to read  over the Christmas break. Thank you so much.” (Sarah Colbourne – Ringmer Academy)
