In line with UK-wide restrictions, our book stall (Amersham & Chesham market) will be closed until further notice.
Bag a bargain at our Book Stall!
The Michael Sobell Hospice Bookstall is located at the Amersham and Chesham Town market on Tuesday and Wednesday weekly - except when it rains.
Customers are asked to make a donation for any books (a variety of genres) or jigsaws they would like and volunteers are on hand to help customers find particular books they are interested in - and even take requests, which are then sourced (where possible) - what a service!
As well as attending the weekly markets, the Book Stall can be seen at events including Croxley Revels, Chorleywood Village Fair and the Rickmansworth Christmas Fair.
About our Volunteers
The Book Stall is run by a handful of ‘retired pensioners’ who handle and display anything from 1,500 to 3,000 books depending on the event! In Amersham: Stewart Brammer, Peter Creer and Clive Seager. In Chesham: David Bayes, Derek Bain and Mick Owen and the trailer driver, David Brameld.
Last year, we have raised more than £13,250, a 37% increase on the previous year. We also generate income from special value books we sell at auction and online with the assistance of volunteers Kamal Sood and Nick Coward.
We continually need donations for the Book Stall, so if you are having a clear-out, please deliver your donation of books to the fundraising office, any of our charity shops, or at the weekly bookstall.
Can you help?
If you or someone you know can spare a day or even half a day to help support the running of the Book Stall, please call David Brameld on 07900 342778.
