On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March, the Founders Pavilion at the Toowoomba Showgrounds will be stacked full of books, toys and games for the annual Chronicle Lifeline Bookfest. Now in its 39 th year the event is the major fundraiser for Lifeline Darling Downs & South West Qld Ltd.
Lifeline Darling Downs CEO, Derek Tuffield OAM said, â€œWe are so grateful to the community for their generous donations of books, dolls and toys which enables us to put on such a fantastic sale.”
“The Chronicle Lifeline Bookfest is a very important event for our organisation with all proceeds staying in our local area to fund our crisis support and suicide prevention services. We rely heavily on the funds raised to ensure we can continue to support those who are doing it tough.â€
There will be literally thousands of donated books on sale with nothing over $5 and many a lot less. Doors open on Saturday 8am- 5pm and Sunday 8am â€“ 2pm at the Toowoomba Showgrounds, Glenvale Road.
With free admission, free parking and Eftpos available, this is the perfect time to stock up on your winter reading material.
