Book Club Member Referral Scheme Terms and Conditions

We are asking you to help us by encouraging your family and friends to become individual supporters of ShelterBox Book Club for a suggested amount of £10 per month. 

Help the ShelterBox Book Club community grow by sharing the value of membership with your friends and you may receive a St. Eval Lavender Hamper worth £50.  If you are an existing member and have friends or family members who are eligible, invite them to join the ShelterBox Book Club today.

By referring a new member, you’ll be playing an important role in building a larger ShelterBox Book Club community and increasing the number of people who are aware of the important work that ShelterBox does.  As a thanks from us, the members linked to the first 150 referrals will receive a St. Eval Lavender Hamper.

The initial scheme is limited to the first 150 new members but may be extended in the future.


How it works

Step one: Referral

Share the benefits of ShelterBox Book Club membership and provide details of your Supporter ID (as provided in the email) to the proposed new member.

Step two: Eligibility for the reward  

Once your contact has decided to become a member, they should complete the Book Club sign-up form (ShelterBox Book Club – No Ordinary Book Club – ShelterBox). They must enter your ID Code into the ‘reference code’ section of the sign-up form, for you to qualify for the referral gift.

Step three: Your thank you gift awaits!  

If the new member is among the first 150 new members to sign-up, you will receive a St. Eval Lavender Hamper.  Each member is limited to a single St. Eval Lavender Hamper.  These will be mailed out in February.
