The Blackheath and Greenwich Amnesty Book Sale returns for its 47th time. This is a regular event, much loved by the local community and buyers from further afield. The church will be filled with tens of thousands of high-quality books at low prices.

Chair of the Group, Rachel Errington, looking forward to the event, says:

“We’re excited that the book sale is back after a break due to the pandemic. As usual we have a wide range of high-quality books at affordable prices. The books are sorted into categories which makes finding that special bargain easier. Books range from second-hand paperbacks to brand new fiction and non-fiction books direct from publishers.”

These book sales are Amnesty International UK’s most successful local fundraising event, with over £300,000 raised since they started. There is always a queue of people waiting to get in when the doors open. The Refugee Café will also be joining us for the first time to sell refreshments and products made by local refugees.

Amnesty International works worldwide to protect men, women and children wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.

At the book sales there is also the opportunity to participate in the group's campaigns.
