Support The Poetry Society


The Poetry Society needs you!

Over the past ten months we’ve been undergoing an ambitious renovation project, updating and improving The Poetry Society’s office and community spaces. We have been receiving donations for the project through different fundraising channels, and we’re extremely grateful for all the money that funding bodies* and individuals have given so far. We are now so close to reaching our fundraising target for completing the renovation of the Café space, which will re-open on 12 June – but we need your help to reach the final 10% of our target.

£2.50-£10 could pay for a new light switch or door handle.
£50-£100 could pay for a chair or wash hand basin.
£250 could pay for new speakers or a new fire door.

Every donation, no matter how large or small, will make a huge difference in helping us to create a home for poetry in the years to come. We hope you’ll be a part of it.

If you feel you can give more please get in touch directly and we can talk you through what your donation could be used for.

And if you’d rather give via our campaign on JustGiving, just visit our page and choose your level of support.

Thank you 

“I promise you poetry can re-awaken your fire like a defibrillator to the spirit. I read three lines of a Seamus Heaney poem and it changed my day. Then I went online and saw that The Poetry Society is ‘a charity that exists to connect people to the transformative power of poetry’. Fiver right there.” – Emer Martin
