Lend a hand and bag a bargain at book sale

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

GAT­TON Shire Hall will be brim­ming with books this Thurs­day morn­ing as Blue Care’s big­gest book sale of the year kicks off.

Or­gan­iser Va­lerie Ki­lah said while there would be a record num­ber and va­ri­ety of books avail­able, they des­per­ately needed more vol­un­teers to help with the set up and pack down of the sale.

“We need vol­un­teers to help us set up early Thurs­day morn­ing, and then to help clean up on the Satur­day morn­ing from about 11am.

“My hus­band usu­ally drives the truck and things but he’s un­able to now, so we need more men, but any ex­tra hands will be ap­pre­ci­ated,” she said.

“Cook’s Trans­port are giv­ing us a driver for the truck, so that’s good.

“If you are a keen reader, this sale is per­fect for you – there are books for ev­ery­one and for re­ally cheap,” she said.

All funds raised will go to­wards sup­port­ing Blue Care’s ser­vices in the Lock­yer com­mu­nity.

Blue Care has been sup­port­ing lo­cal peo­ple in the Lock­yer area with com­mu­nity ser­vices since 1970.

Any­one who can help Mrs Ki­lah and the team, please phone 5462 3069.

The Blue Care book sale is on at the Gat­ton Shire Hall from 8am–5pm this Thurs­day and Fri­day, and Satur­day from 8am–noon.
