The Booksale runs every May during Christian Aid Week. In 2018 the dates are

Saturday 12th May to Saturday 19th May

The Booksale committee are very grateful to Morningside United Church who give us the use of the church sanctuary for a total of over three weeks, allowing us to set up the sale, open to the public for a whole week, and clear it all away.  They also allow us to use part of the church basement for book storage and sorting all year round.  It’s largely thanks to them that we make as much as we do.  Other local churches are also involved in the organisation planning and running of the event.

In 2017 the total amount donated to Christian Aid by the Holy Corner Christian Aid Committee including the Booksale and other fundraising such as the house-to-house collection, and after deduction of expenses, was £15,732.
