Westbury Lions Winter Book Sale
Westbury Lions send their sincere thanks to all those who supported the three days Book Sale at their town shop on the Bratton Road in the middle of December.
Lion John Powell reports “Over three hundred books were sold and a further fifty or more children’s books were given away free: children’s books always being free at the Lion’s Book Shop.”
“This was a remarkable success given that the shop only opens for nine hours each week (10 am to 1 pm, Thursday to Saturday) this represents one book being purchased every ninety seconds! The implications could hardly be more positive with regard to the healthy state of Westbury people’s attitudes towards literacy and learning as well as their superb support for a charity that focuses overwhelmingly on funding local good causes.”
“All the Westbury Lions are humbly appreciative of the kindness and consideration of those who supported this event.”
Stay tuned for further bookshop bargains coming up in 2013.
