Unison branch needs more books for Malawi charity fund-raising
Books are still wanted by public services union Unison which recently joined forces with the charity Booksola to raise funds for orphans in Malawi.
The Knutsford-based charity has already built an orphanage in Malawi and it now has an outlet where they can sell second-hand books, CDs and DVDs.
Books can be delivered to the local Unison office at Alexandra Buildings in Lerwick from 1-2pm and people can donate books in any language, new or second-hand, school books, novels, reference books or text books. They can be paperbacks or hardbacks. All books donated will go towards saving lives.
Kaila McCulloch of Unison said so far they had had a great response from people all over Shetland, ncluding local businesses and charity shops.
She said: “Our aim is to fill a 20 foot container, which is now just over half full. We need a last push to try get this container filled before Christmas.”
