Charity booksale in Carlton raises record amount for local good causes

WIDE SELECTION: Each year donated books fill the entire property on Vernon Road, in Carlton

An charity book sale held last weekend in Carlton raised a record amount for local good causes.

Organisers behind the ExLibris book sale, which took place over ten days at a property in Carlton, announced today that the sale brought in a total of £2376. The cash will now be donated to charities in the region. They also rescued over 5,000 books from landfill.

Last year’s event raised over £2,000 for local charities, and volunteers, who famously all have to wear masks while selling the books, were hoping this year’s extended ten-day celebratory sale, which began on April 29, would raise even more money.

The book sale was opened by Mayor Meredith Lawrence, who also wore a mask during the event to honour the group’s tradition.
