Book sale raises cash for char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&World Update -

KIND-HEARTED vis­i­tors to Crow­land Gar­den Cen­tre have re­cy­cled their un­wanted books to help gen­er­ate cash for char­ity.

The gar­den cen­tre, off the B1166 Post­land Road, launched an on-go­ing bring and buy sec­ond hand book sale in aid of Green­fin­gers in April.

So far, it has raised £300 for the or­gan­i­sa­tion, which cre­ates gar­dens at chil­dren’s hos­pices across the UK.

Gar­den cen­tre man­ager San­jay Bowry said: “We’re rais­ing money for the char­ity by invit­ing peo­ple to bring in books to do­nate for the sale, which will last un­til the end of 2010.

“The pa­per­backs and hard­backs cost a min­i­mum of 50 pence each and all money raised from the bring and buy will be given to the char­ity.

“So far we have raised £300 for Green­fin­gers with our book­case, which is great.

“We have had lots of do­na­tions, but we still need lots more.

“If any­one has any­thing they would like to do­nate, we’d love to hear from them.

“We have also had some re­ally old books and an­nu­als, which have been quickly snapped up.”

Deb­o­rah Skil­licorn, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Green­fin­gers, said: “We’re ab­so­lutely de­lighted that Crow­land Gar­den Cen­tre and its cus­tomers are sup­port­ing Green­fin­gers with this in­spir­ing bring and buy sec­ond hand book sale.

“It’s a great way to re­cy­cle your books and pick up a good read at a very rea­son­able price, while also help­ing raise in­valu­able funds for the char­ity.
