Library team's donation is no fiction!

We were delighted this week to receive a donation of a total of £116.00 from the Healthcare Library at Basingstoke.

Throughout the past year the library team raised money by asking people to donate money for fiction books which they hold at the library.  This service has been a long term success for the library.  Where the staff are able to donate good condition fiction books and swap for another or donate to take one away. Not only is this a fantastic way of recycling books but a wonderful way in which they can raise money for the charity.
