Tower Hamlets : Great success

Tower Hamlets exceeds all expectations

Whilst dubbed as “The most deprived area in the UK”, the borough of Tower Hamlets, just outside the City of London has surpassed all expectations

Whilst dubbed as “The most deprived area in the UK”, the borough of Tower Hamlets, just outside the City of London has surpassed all expectations. GET uncovered a rich vein of generosity and the businesses and residents of Greater London kindly donated books in their thousands.

The total number of books collected and sorted at the Tower Hamlets book depository ran into tens of thousands. The property on Commercial Road, Tower Hamlets, proved to be one of GET’s flagship depositories and stands as a testament to the success of this initiative and the generosity of the local organisations and residents.

This kindly donated reading material helps in our challenge to increase the literacy rates in the UK and change lives forever.

These premises are now being converted into a free school and GET are looking for alternative premises in the area. If you have or know of any premises which could be used to collect, sort and distribute books and other reading material, please contact us.
