Shopping Tips

  • Bring strong bags with you.  As you leave one section your books will be bagged so volunteers know they have been paid for but you’re bound to buy more than you expect so bring some good quality shopping bags with you just in case.
  • They have thought of everything!  Trolley will be available to hire for a gold coin donation, I know I’d donate to avoid arm ache!
  • Wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water.
