THE Save the Chil­dren Book­shop in the Smart Street Mall will mark its 10th an­niver­sary with a VIP cel­e­bra­tion and morn­ing tea on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 15, at 10.30am. “Since open­ing our first book­shop in the Ar­cade 10 years ago, we have raised hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars for chil­dren in need,” book­shop man­ager Denise said. “To cel­e­brate we are host­ing a morn­ing tea in the Ar­cade which is free to all our cus­tomers: past, present and fu­ture.” The book­shop has been at the heart of Man­durah branch of Save the Chil­dren since 2008. In 1999, thanks to an idea by Robyn Brown, the branch started col­lect­ing books for a fundrais­ing sale. The first book sale was held in Tuckey Street in a venue do­nated by Kevin Green and its suc­cess made it an an­nual event.
