Books raise funds for com­mu­nity

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Thou­sands of books are up for sale in Pu­taruru this week as the Pu­taruru Ro­tary Club holds its an­nual book sale.

Mem­ber Howard Goold has been in­volved with the sale for the past four years and said it usu­ally raises be­tween $3,000 and $ 4,000 for the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

And ev­ery year that money is in­vested right back into the com­mu­nity.

Pre­vi­ous re­cip­i­ents of the funds in­clude young lead­ers and St John, he said.

Last year the club sold 3000 books that were all do­nated by lo­cals.

‘‘ What we don’t

sell the Mata­mata Li­ons take so there’s no wastage.’’

He said a huge thanks goes out to the com­mu­nity.

‘‘With­out them we wouldn’t be able to have a book sale.

‘‘We are just glad to be able to put that back in, that’s the key thing, com­mu­nity look­ing af­ter com­mu­nity.’’
