    Charity Book Swish

    Books on a market


    Firstsite, Lewis Gardens, High Street
    Colchester, CO1 1JH

    Are your bookshelves fit to burst? Then why not join in our Charity Book Swish, taking place as part of our PLACE weekend.

    All YOU need to is donate your pre-loved books on the day. All WE need to do is sell them on to people keen to give them a new home.

    All proceeds will go to FORS: Friends of Refugees Suffolk, who are organising the Charity Book Swish. FORS  raises funds and collects aid for refugees in France and supports resettled people locally.

    Any books remaining at the end of the day will be donated to Chelmsford Prison Library.
