Second-Hand Bookstall

We’re proud of our little bookstall which, thanks to our generous customers and friends, has raised a large amount of cash for charities and emergency appeals. Please keep bringing us your second hand books –  not only can they make time fly on a dreary day when the thrill of watching clothes whirl and spin loses its appeal, their sale can help others. If you have any ideas on any charities future money could be donated to, please let us know by emailing or tell one of the staff when you’re in the launderette.

Donations from Second Hand Book Stall Sales

Since 2006 we have raised money from the sale of second-hand books and donated all the money to local causes, (we originally started selling books to help raise money for the repairs to vandalised brickwork at the playground), national charities and to appeals made by the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and the Red Cross/Red Crescent.
