Kiwi Christmas Books for sick kids

We are delighted to be the charity of choice for Kiwi Christmas Books’ Christmas donation to the Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital.  Last year Kiwi Christmas Books provided 1600 new books to Auckland’s City Mission and Woman’s Refuge, through the generous support of the public.  After their success in the big smoke they have kindly extended their gifting programme to Wellington.

There are many good book stores around Wellington where you can buy and donate a book for kids to read during their hospital stay this Christmas.  Ask your children to get involved in choosing a book they’d love to receive!

Participating stores:

Vic Books Pipitea: Rutherford House, 27 Lambton Quay

Vic Books Kelburn: Easterfield Building, 21 Kelburn Parade

Unity Books: 57 Willis Street, Wellington Central

Schrödinger’s Books: 137 Jackson Street, Petone

Another Chapter Bookshop: 6 Riddiford Street, Newtown

Good Books: 2/16 Jessie Street, Te Aro

All books donated in Wellington will go to the Wellington City Mission and to the Wellington Hospitals Foundation
