Support our charity with 5K May 2021
Participate in 5K May for Libraries Unlimited.
Walk, run, swim, cycle, hop, skip, or even roll - there are endless possibilities for getting involved with 5K May!
We’re inviting you to commit to completing 5K, however you choose, across the month of May - that can be all in one go, split across multiple days or even shared between friends and family - socially distanced of course.
Once you've completed your 5K, donate £5 and nominate 5 more people to get involved with the challenge.
So whether you're doing laps around your garden, taking a stroll with your dog, or daring a chilly dip in the sea, enjoy getting into the great outdoors and moving your body, all while raising valuable funds to support our work in our local communities.
Support our charity
Devon Libraries is run by Devon-based charity, Libraries Unlimited (registered charity number 1170092).
Every penny we raise goes directly towards library services that help make a difference to people’s lives and communities.
Through home library visits, one-to-one IT and business support, community events, free library services, advice and resources, we provide support to people of all ages across Devon and Torbay.
There are lots of ways you can support our charitable work including simply making a donation within your local library. Here are some other ways you can help support us:
