pop-up bookshop needs a new home

free books how it worksOur team of bookshop volunteers is still searching for a new home for the project in Bexhill.

The pop-up bookshop reused thousands of books and encouraged people to read. The friendly volunteers also provided a welcoming place for people to pop in for a chat. People gave donations for their books which raised funds for our craft and DIY sessions at local Refuges.

Meanwhile, the shop they used was kept open, used and aired and the owner quickly found a commercial tenant.

The team is looking for an empty shop in Bexhill to continue the project – please get in touch if you’re able to help.
