After two Covid-19 postponements, Bookarama was finally run from Friday 10th to Sunday the 12th June. An extra day was added to help spread out attendance and deal to capacity donations.

As so many books, puzzles, records and DVDs had already been donated, nearly filling our 40-foot container, collection was not needed leading up to this sale. Collections will resume again later this year, for the two weeks prior to the next Bookarama.

Our club raised $10,000 which has been passed on to the four charities that usually assist with H2H, the Hadlow to Harbour fun run jog, but missed out on donations when it was cancelled back in March.

  • Heart Foundation
  • Stroke Club
  • Hospice
  • Life Education Trust

A $5,000 donation to CPlay was also able to be made.
