All unmarked books are £4.99 except the J John's A Christmas Compendium which is £10.99.

Here's a post from one of our volunteers, Heather Gatt:

As some of you know, I have been making washable 2 sided facemasks since the end of the last lockdown. I have been selling them for £2.50 each with all proceeds going to two children’s charities - Pied Piper* and Toybox** (I donate the material for the masks so there are no costs to be covered from the money raised).

So far I have sold 350 to friends and through the Books Plus Gloucester bookshop in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital but unfortunately the bookshop has had to close due to the latest lockdown.

So now I’m trying to raise funds for the two charities through social media. Here are some masks that I have made, some have different designs on each side, some have the same design on both sides. Photo 1 is Christmas designs, photo 2 Everyday designs and photo 3 other material I have that can be used to make facemasks.

If you are interested, please contact me through [email protected] and let me know what design you would like (ie the photo and coloured number) – I make them in men’s, ladies’, teenager's and younger children's sizes. I can deliver them to you free of charge in Gloucester or Cheltenham or you can collect them if you prefer.

Please could you share this to help me raise funds for:

* Pied Piper raises funds for the Children’s Centre in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and other children’s hospitals and medical centres throughout Gloucestershire.

** Toybox helps marginalised street children, who have often suffered abuse, escape from a life on the streets.
