The Big Book Sale which took place on 22nd and 26th August was a huge success. It has raised a magnificent £614 for the Open to All opens in a new window project at St Cyr’s.
We were very grateful to have the use of Pippa’s Barn at Church Farm given the unsettled weather but it also gave us the opportunity to display over a thousand books and DVDs. We knew we had been successful at the end of Saturday but with so many books, we decided to hold a Twilight Book Sale with refreshments on Wednesday evening. At the Twilight Book Sale we again raised over £100.
There is still a great selection of books which are now back in St Cyr’s and we will let you know once we are permitted to sell them. Several boxes and bags were donated to the Longfield Hospice and others will be going to a book sale at Tewkesbury Abbey.
Huge thanks go to everyone in the village who donated books which meant there was such a wonderful selection to choose from, and to all those of you who came and bought books and donated so generously to this project.
Caroline, Pippa and Wendy
