The Saints is supporting a brand new initiative at Northampton General Hospital that will be providing patients with a library service, called the Bedside Book Club.
And Saints supporters can donate their books at the upcoming Anglo-Welsh Cup game against the Scarlets on Friday, February 3rd at a special collection point in the Match Day Village at Franklin’s Gardens.
“We’re expanding our volunteer service to introduce a bedside library service for our patients and we’d love to create a collection of Northampton’s favourite reads,” said Emma Wimpress, volunteer services manager at Northampton General Hospital.
“It can be any genre or subject – novels, short stories, poetry, non-fiction – as long as it’s a book you’ve enjoyed and you’d happily recommend.
“We’re hoping that by the end of the campaign we have a collection of books that really reflects Northampton’s favourite reading material and give our patients a great choice of books to read while they’re staying with us.”
The hospital is encouraging book donors to post a photo of their donated book on social media using the hashtag #NGHBBC or email a photo and an explanation as to why their donated book is your favourite to [email protected]gh.nhs.uk
If supporters cannot make the Scarlets game then they can leave their books at the donation point in the main reception at Franklin’s Gardens during opening hours.
