Book sale to aid Grandmothers

Sale slated for June 8 at Wembley Mall also to include CDs and DVDs

A large amount of gently used books, CDs and DVDs will be available at a sale June 8 in Parksville, with proceeds going to help grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa raise their grandchildren.

The Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers have been sorting the donated items since January, which have arrived from all over the Island and the Mainland.

There are a variety of items for all ages at the book sale, and the funds will support the Stephen Lewis Foundation, helping grandmothers and those who have been affected by the HIV AIDS pandemic.

The fundraiser is being held at Wembley Mall June 8 from 9 to 3 p.m.
