United Church of Egham Book Fairs

June 6th, 2013

United Church Of Egham

 

 

The United Church of Egham has been running a Charity Book Stall since September 2000 and is open most months on Friday afternoons/evenings and Saturday mornings. They aim to raise a minimum of £500 each month (i.e. £5,000 per year) with the proceeds split between their current Church fundraising appeal and a selection of local charities, good causes and two local Church schools. Irrespective of the amount raised, the church always commits to giving £250 to a chosen local charity partner to give something back to the local community; the Bookstall has raised over £30,000 since its inception. They have over 4,000 new and second hand books in stock plus a variety of DVDs, CDs, videos, vinyl and talking cassettes, all lovingly donated and sorted by category/author.

Staines Shopmobility is pleased to announce that it was the recipient of a £250 donation from the proceeds of the bookstall held in April. We would like to thank the United Church of Egham for its generous support of our charity and its work. A list of dates for future bookstalls can be found below:
