Christian Aid Sale
2015 Sale dates Sat 9 May – Fri 15 May (closed Sun 10 May)
Since it started over 40 years ago the sale has raised over £2m for Christian Aid’s work to end poverty. Over 500 volunteer helpers from Edinburgh and beyond work together to create the biggest fundraising event in the UK for Christian Aid.
100,000 books of every kind fill the Sanctuary and both courtyards. But there’s much more than books … upstairs in the gallery you’ll find sheet music (and more books!) downstairs in the Undercroft Café you’ll find a gallery of pictures as well as delicious homebaking and food to sustain you. Head through to the Davidson Room hidden at the back of the church and you’ll find a treasure store of antiques and collectables. And did we mention toys, records, stamps, postcards and ephemera?
