Variety collects for book fair
It’s time to clear out the bookshelves and CD racks for a good cause.
Variety – The Children’s Charity is collecting good quality books, games, DVDs, jigsaw puzzles and CDs for its annual Monster Book Fair.
The charity collects items for the fair all year round and relies on public donations to make it a success.
This year more than 70,000 books will be on sale, sorted into more than 200 subject categories.
The fair will be held on July 25 to 27 at the Alexandra Park Function Cen- tre, Greenlane Rd West, Epsom.
Last year’s event made a record $80,000 for Variety, with the money going towards the charity’s Child Literacy Programme providing computers and books for schools around the country.
Books can be dropped off to Variety’s office at 290 Great South Rd, Greenlane, from 8.30am to 5pm or Variety’s special book bus can pick them up if requested.
