Profits raised from the Bendigo Book Fair will support the work of Bendigo Foodshare
Support the Bendigo Book Fair
After many years successfully running the Bendigo Book Fair, in 2023 the Y Service Club of Bendigo handed over the running of the Book Fair to Bendigo Foodshare.
A Massive thank you to the dream team Garth and Marg, who did a wonderful job coordinating the Bendigo Book Fair. These two lovely people went above and beyond to make sure the event ran as smooth as possible.
The first Book Fair over Easter was a huge success, tens of thousands of books were sold with more than 3,000 transactions across the 4 days. Thanks to all who came along and purchased a book. We are still calculating the final amount that was raised from the event, but every cent makes a difference!
A big thank you to the many volunteers who took time out of their Easter to assist with the Fair. Many worked long hours, arriving before the event started to sort the books and staying after close up each day to tidy the books and tally numbers. The volunteers made sure the books were tidy, sorted, counted and assisted customers with purchasing. The Book Fair would not have been possible without you.
We hope to see you at the next one!
