Evelina London Book Club

Please help purchase new books for our young patients at Evelina London Children's Hospital.

Welcome to the Evelina London Book Club (#BooksForEvelina)!

Here, we're asking for donations of newly purchased books to fill a library that will help parents and their children deal with difficult situations, feelings or looking different.

Below is a list of books that we'd love to have; if you're able to purchase a copy or two for the children, then please email for details on how to get them to us.

If you are using Amazon, then please login through Amazon Smile with your usual login details, then search for and select Evelina London and carry on browsing. That way you're providing twice the support at no extra cost to you.

If you would rather donate funds to help purchase books, then you can do so here.

Please note we are unable to accept second-hand books due to infection control.
