How we work with charities

We have a relationship with many charities across the UK, from large national charities to smaller local hospices, recycling waste and surplus books sold directly to us by those charities. On an annual basis the charities we work with benefit by a significant sum as well as making considerable savings in waste disposal costs.

Listed below are some the charities we have a relationship with, and what they have to say about World of Books:
