The Blackheath and Greenwich Amnesty Book Sale hosted by the local Amnesty International Blackheath and Greenwich group returns for its 44th year on Saturday 16 June 9am-5pm at the Church of the Ascension. This is a regular event, much loved by the local community and buyers from further afield. The church is filled with over 10,000 high-quality books at low prices.
Chair of the Group, Rachel Errington looking forward to the event says
“The quality of books is very high and the prices are astonishingly affordable. There is a wide variety of bargains to be found, from second-hand paperbacks to review copies of recently published novels.”
The Amnesty Blackheath and Greenwich Group’s book sales, are established as Amnesty International’s most successful local fundraising event in the UK, raising £300,000 across the years. The events are so popular that there is always a queue of people waiting to get in when the doors open with some of them travelling many miles to attend.
The book sale is also a campaign event so people should come prepared to both buy books as well as to sign petitions for the group’s campaigns.
Amnesty International works worldwide to protect men, women and children wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.
