The Market Charity BookStall
At the market, we have set up a charity Bookstall, where surplus books are donated by customers, which are then sold at €1, with the proceeds being donated to charity. The first charity to receive funds was the Simon Community, to whom €135 is being donated.
The next charity was the Haiti Earthquake Victims Appeal, which we ran during Jan/Feb, and raised over €100 for that. Our current charity is for African ActionAid; our brother is doing a 500k sponsored cycle, so we wanted to support him in doing that.
If you have any spare books - either for adults or children - please bring them along to the market; they will go to a good cause.
If you are part of a community or voluntary group and wish to set up your own charity event at our market, please get in touch with us at Brid@honest2goodness.ie or phone us at 087-6294713.
