Our Charity Bookshop

Catalyst took over a bookshop in Godalming as part of their work to improve wellbeing and mental health. They asked local people to come up with a new name and ‘A Novel Idea’ was born.

It provides a range of high quality books and the income generated supports some of the work Catalyst do in the local community.

The bookshop has been and continues to be staffed entirely by a team of dedicated volunteers many of whom have benefited from engagement with Catalyst.  There is a range of donated high quality fiction, non fiction and children’s books.
