Charity Bookstall

WE ARE AIMING TO HOLD OUR NEXT  BOOKSTALL ON:
FRIDAY 11 FEBRUARY 2022 (10am – 6pm).

SORRY, BUT DUE TO A MASSIVE INFLUX OF BOOKS/CDs/DVDs AND A LACK OF VOLUNTEERS & STORAGE SPACE, WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT DONATIONS OF ITEMS FOR OUR CHARITY BOOKSTALL, UNTIL THE OVERFLOW IS CLEARED.

DESPITE THE LOCKDOWN CLOSURES, WE HAVE CONTINUED TO DONATE £500 TO OUR CHARITY PARTNERS FROM RESERVES AND ONLINE SALES.

EVEN WHEN OUR BOOKSTALL IS NOT OPEN, YOU CAN STILL BUY SOME OF OUR BOOKS ONLINE, FROM OUR E-BAY SELLER ACCOUNTS:   mylovelybooks  and/or   ucefundraise 

OPENING TIMES:
FRIDAYS : 10 AM – 6 PM only

Our Charity Bookstall co-ordinator reflects on another record breaking year.

We have been running our monthly Charity Book Stall since September 2000, and raised over £100,000. We have approx. 10,000 new, second hand, classic and collectors corner books in stock plus a variety of DVDs, CDs and vinyl, which have all been donated and sorted by category/author as it helps many of our loyal customers find what they’re looking for.

Irrespective of the amount we raise, we commit to donating a fixed amount of £500 to our chosen local charity partner giving something back to the local community, who support us so well. The rest goes towards our current Church Fundraising Appeal. For the fourth year running, we raised over £10,000 and in 2020 donated £6,000 to a number of different local charities and good causes. THANK YOU to everyone involved, whether a customer, volunteer or a charity partner, in helping keep this valuable community venture going.
