THE third booksale at the Strutts Centre in Belper has helped push money raised from the sales towards £1,000.

Organisers of last weekend’s sale at the Derby Road venue were pleased to report that the landmark total has almost been reached from the sale of donated books.

The money raised will be used for the upkeep of the building, including ongoing work such as decorating and roof repairs.

A spokeswoman for the centre said: “We welcome donations of books in all genres. These can be dropped off in reception at Strutts. Thanks to all who have supported the project.”

The next book sale will be early next year.
