BOOK APPEAL: An Exeter-based supermarket is selling second hand books to raise funds for a charity which sends people of all ages with severe disabilities and illnesses on holidays and trips to Exmouth.

Sainsbury’s Pinhoe has chosen the Dream-A-Way charity as its charity of the year and is holding a book bring-and-buy event this month. You can drop off unwanted books at the store then go along on Monday, August 13 and buy a book.

The charity’s chairman Jeff Merrett said: “We are delighted to have such great support from all the team at Sainsbury’s Pinhoe and think that this is a great idea which helps to recycle the books we have finished with.

“The more books donated, the more money raised for Dream-A-Way.”
