The Charity Centre in Retreat is looking for donations of books to help The Emma Animal Rescue Society (Tears) raise funds to alleviate the suffering of the animals in and around Retreat.

The Charity Centre is one of four bookshops and relies 100% on donations from supporters­.

“The books are sorted, categorised and stocked into the shops and you can find almost anything.

“We receive everything from mass market fiction to classics and collectibles. It’s amazing the variety of titles that get donated to Tears in support of the animals,” says Tinka Shapiro of Tears.

Donations can also be dropped off at Valyland and if it is kennels or larger donations, Tears will pick it up..

“We look for donations in any shape or form. Anything that can be sold we will sell to raise money for the work that Tears does. The joy of second-hand bookshops is that a surprise find can be on the next shelf.

“Whether you are an avid reader, an enthusiast, or even a collector, the Tears Bookshops offer something for everyone,” she says.

Contact Tinka on 074 149 2797 or 084 280 9000.
