Worcester book shop launches bid to help more independent writers

Worcester Editorial 8th Jan, 2024 Updated: 8th Jan, 2024   0

A COMMUNITY book shop which aims to support Worcester’s independent creatives and raise vital cash for charity has launched a bid to ensure it can house the Faithful City’s ever-growing list of creative works.

Script Haven on Worcester High Street opened in August and has since helped support over 100 independent authors and artists by giving them a space to house their work and have it noticed.

Shop owners have also transformed the area into a safe space and community hub as well as hosting fund-raisers for many local causes.

However, the shop’s rapid growth has left it struggling to provide space for more authors to house their books.

Bosses have launched a crowdfunder page to help pay for much-needed upgrades, including allowing them to relocate the shop’s cafe counter and install more book spaces.

It also wants to buy more equipment to help them to run more live and online events and charity fund-raisers.

So far, the crowdfunder page has raised £380 of the £10,000 target.
