Charity Fundraiser: Lighthouse Storybook

Raise much-needed funds for children’s charities with our Lighthouse Storybook


Back in 2020, Fighting Words and Great Lighthouses of Ireland launched the Young Storykeepers initiative. We invited submissions of original writing inspired by lighthouses from young writers aged 7-12.

What followed was an incredible influx of stories, poems, illustrations, comic strips, song lyrics and even stop-motion animations. The unprecedented response from young writers around the island of Ireland and abroad quickly turned our original one-off digital magazine into a five-volume one!

Published at the end of 2020 and snapped up as wonderful Christmas gifts, Irish Lights shared a selection of Young Storykeeper submissions as an inspirational book. Lucky lighthouse lovers will be delighted to know that the book is available to buy again and makes a charming stocking filler!

Not only has the book shared these talented children’s wonderful, original stories; its proceeds have supported two incredible charities and the great work they do for children nationwide – Children in Hospital Ireland and Northern Ireland Hospice.

A fantastic way to support the work of two worthy charities after the hardships of COVID-19 restrictions, all the proceeds of this unique €10 book go direct to the organisations.
