PSP Gives Away 25th Book Hamper!

If you follow us on Twitter (and if not, why not?), you’ll know that we run a quarterly book hamper competition and have done since 2016. Each one contains £150 worth of the latest popular books, lovingly tailored by our friends at Peter’s Books, based in Birmingham – the leading specialist supplier of books and furniture to schools and libraries.

With our 25th winner for Q1 2023 about to be announced, it dawned on us that this little competition that started as a bit of fun has resulted in us providing UK school and college libraries with over £4,000 worth of books over the past 7 years!

Most of these books have gone straight onto the shelves in the school library, others have been donated to charities and other good causes. Reading for pleasure and encouraging lifelong independent learning is something we’re very passionate about here at PSP, so we couldn’t be happier that we’ve reached 25 quarterly draws and still going strong!

Our last winner was Westminster School and other winners include Marlborough College (who generously donated their hamper to Swindon Academy), Charles Read Academy, Highgate School (who donated to Kensington Aldridge Academy), Tanbridge High School and King’s College School Wimbledon (who kindly donated their books to Lilian Bayliss Technology School). Would you believe it, even one of our local schools – Ipswich School – has been drawn at random as a previous book hamper winner.

The very first winner, way back in September 2016, was Goffs Academy in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, who actually won a book hamper worth £250! It was our first time running the competition so we thought we’d push the boat out.

The draw is currently only available to our academic customers who have a Service Plan, but if you’d like to be in with a chance of winning our next £150 book hamper prize draw, taking place in Q2 2023, we encourage you to sign up to our mailing list, follow us on Twitter (and LinkedIn if you like), drop us a quick DM and we’ll make sure your school, college or academy is included.

And if you’d like to learn more about our security and stock management options and Infiniti, our cutting-edge, cloud-native library management system for schools and colleges, you can get more information and book a FREE demo here. Or give us a call on 01473 745375.
