[Scribblecon is an annual all-ages, independent comic con in Todmorden that’s free to attend. Now in its fourth year!]


We welcome any prizes for our tombola table (not just comic-related items). We also invite local businesses who want to participate in raising money for Forget Me Not, to donate any items or certificates.


We are currently looking for donations of items such as:

  • Books
  • Toys, Games & Action figures
  • Collectables
  • DVDs
  • Accessories

That have any of the following themes :

  • Comics
  • Cartoons
  • Film / TV
  • Science Fiction

Items can be new or used.

New (or as-new) items may go on the tombola table, where all the money raised will go to our chosen charity (which this year is Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice).

Used items will go on the 2nd hand stall, where all money from donated items that are sold will also go towards the hospice.

Any items remaining unsold at Scribblecon will either be kept for next year’s event (also to raise money for charity), or will be donated to the Forget Me Not charity shop in Hebden Bridge.

Where to donate items

There is a box for Scribblecon donations, behind the bar at the Golden Lion (where the comic con will take place). If you can donate items ahead of the event – say no later than May 19th – that’d be grand, as this allows us time to price things and plan the tombola ahead of time.

But if you aren’t going to be in Todmorden until Scribblecon, and you want to donate, that’s fine too! Just bring any items to the stalls (upstairs) or ask one of the volunteers for assistance.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions!
