Winchmore Hill Quakers thank generous people across the borough for backing their fourth annual booksale – run jointly with Books for Amnesty. The event on Saturday 27th April raised more than £1400 for the two groups, and beat last year’s total.
An appeal for books was highly successful. “We had a flood of offers. About forty people gave books, as well as our usual sources, and so we had even more stock than usual” said meeting spokesperson Stephen Cox. “It was fantastic to have calls from many local people, with no particular link to the Quakers, who wanted to support the event. Local people had heard about the need for funds to protect the future of our historic Meeting House.”
Enfield Barnet and Palmers Green Amnesty Group ran a stall to raise awareness of human rights issues around the world. The group meets at various places across the borough, go to www.amnesty.org.uk/groups to find your local Amnesty activists.
Some saleable stock left over was shared with other local groups but most went to support Books for Amnesty’s bookshops.
Winchmore Hill Quakers welcome visitors to Meeting on Sunday mornings at 10.30 am.
