It takes a pencil to write a book, a book to open minds and a small donation to make a big difference.

Looking for your next great read at a low price?

The Pop Up Charity Book Stall will return to Broughton Court, Berry (outside Berry Pharmacy) on Friday, September 29, October 27, November 24 and December 15 from 9am to 2pm.

Everyone young and old loves books, and the Shoalhaven Education Fund will provide plenty to choose from at their monthly book stall.

You will find good quality paperback and hard cover fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, cook books, gardening books and lots more.

The funds that are raised from the sale of the books will assist the work of the Shoalhaven Education Fund.

Book donations are most welcome. Contact Mary Jo on 0419 883 312 for more information. 

The Shoalhaven Education Fund (SEF) was established to provide much needed financial assistance and support to local youth to help them achieve their post high school education, training and vocation aspirations.

The SEF recognised that the cost of regional students pursuing their post high school goals is often much greater than those of their metropolitan counterparts and that sometimes these costs can be prohibitive.

With this in mind, the SEF fundraises throughout the year and accepts donations from local residents and businesses in order to provide financial grants to students who need an extra helping hand.

The funds come directly from the local community – none of it is government funded – celebrating the aspirations of local youth and working to help them achieve these aspirations.

Grants are non-cash and can cover any education or work related expenses including accommodation.
