This was the start of the ABC Book Club (ABC), which is now the primary focus of their charitable giving and CSR work and we are proud to be working with more schools than ever to ensure children across South East London and North Kent have free access to good quality books. The ABC works within the community to collect and redistribute pre-loved children’s books to local schools and organisations in need.



Have your children grown out of the books they once adored? Do they now sit unused and collecting dust? Why not give them a new home by donating them to the ABC?

You can drop off your pre-loved books (suitable for 3-11 year olds) at any Acorn, Langford Russell or John Payne office, and together we can help children develop a life-long love of reading.
