How Can I Help?
Bring and buy bookstalls at regional conferences
If you attend a UKLA conference, you will find a Project Connect Books for Africa bring and buy bookstall. Please bring along a book donation and buy something from the stall. We are looking for donations of novels, up-to date professional books on literacy and literacy teaching and good quality children’s books to sell on these stalls.
UKLA Project Connect gift card
The proceeds of these cards all go to Project Connect. Cards cost £11 each (£10 donation + £1 for card and envelope). Gift cards are on sale at UKLA conferences or from the UKLA office.
Sponsored ‘Keep fit’ sessions, lunch time school discos, wet sponge throwing contests and big breakfasts (involving parents and grandparents) have all been successful in raising funds for Project Connect.
Fundraising in HE
After a short presentation about Project Connect, a one-off 'chuck it in a bucket’ event at the end of a lecture can be surprisingly productive. With ‘one Christmas card for everyone’, all staff pin one card to a board and give the money saved to Project Connect.
Making a donation
The best way to make a donation is through MyDonate as we can automatically claim 25% more with Gift Aid if you are a UK tax payer. If you prefer, you can make a direct donation by sending in a cheque payable to UKLA, to our address: UKLA, Room 9, VAL, 9 Newarke Street, Leicester LE1 5SN, clearly marked Project Connect. Alternatively we can take card payments by phone 0116 254 4116
