A Best Seller!

Thank you to everyone who donated books, volunteered their time to help and those of you who came along and bought a book or two over the weekend at our Book Sale.   The Gyle Shopping Centre was lovely and busy and the book boxes were certainly lighter when we dismantled the stand compared to set up.

Everyone’s help and support helped us raise over £900 for Ravelrig, which is £300 more than the previous sale, so a big THANK YOU!

Setting up the Book Sale on Friday night. 


Are you book shelves creaking under the weight of all your books?  When was the last time you read them or will you ever read them again?

Why not have a tidy up and donate any of your unwanted books to our next Book Sale for Ravelrig?

Our Book Sale is on the 30th September and 1st October at the Gyle Shopping Centre and we would appreciate any donations to be made by 20th September.

Thank you!

Do you have any unwanted books you could donate ?

Books wanted

After the success of the April Book Sale we are holding another on the 30th September and 1st October at the Gyle Shopping Centre.

So, your challenge is to sort through your book cases and donate any unwanted books you may have.  We raised over £600 for the stables in April and it would be fantastic to raise the same amount again, or even more!

Have a look around your home or maybe your friends are also having a clear out.  Drop your books into the Office or Club Room.  If you are unable to do that and would like someone to pick them up drop us an email.

Thank you!

Have you got any unwanted books?


Book worm

The book sale at the Gyle Shopping Centre was a great success with over 70 crates full of books for the lucky shoppers to choose from.  The sale was on Saturday and Sunday and with the help and support of Currie and Balerno Rotary we sold lots of books and raised over £650.

Thank you to everyone who donated books and also those who gave their time to help run the stall throughout the weekend.
