Booklovers are set to rush through the doors at the Sunshine Coast Lifeline Bookfest from 6th April to 9th April to bag a bargain from thousands of books.
With 160 tables of books up for sale Lifeline Bookfest is the biggest fundraising event for Lifeline services including the 24-hour Lifeline 13 11 14 Crisis Support Line.
Lifeline Bookfest Organiser Melissa Keary said the goal for the event is to raise much-needed funds for Lifeline Crisis Support with help from the invaluable Bookfest volunteers.
“We are immensely grateful for the volunteers who have dedicated their time to help us set up, sort, stack and pack ahead of this weekend’s event but we would always welcome more to help us with this huge but fun job,” Ms Keary said.
More than 2600 calls are made by Queenslanders each day to Lifeline and by bringing along a bag or market trolley to this year’s event, Sunshine Coast book worms can grab a bargain from the thousands of books on sale and contribute to bettering the lives of others.
“We are expecting a great turn out for this years First Bookfest event, and we encourage customers to get in early and come prepared with comfy shoes and a bag or three,” said Ms Keary.
“Everyone should experience a Lifeline Bookfest because no Bookfest is the same and you never know what treasures you might find. With prices as low as a $1, we guarantee the best bargains in town.”
Sunshine Coast residents still have time to donate their pre-owned books by visiting Lifeline in Bokarina or any of our other stores.
Proceeds from the Lifeline Bookfest Sunshine Coast support Lifeline services such as the 24 hour 13 11 14 Crisis Support Line. Queensland Lifeline services and shops are run by UnitingCare Community — a leading provider of community services and programs for individuals, families and children.
