2017 Thanks to everyone who came, who donated, who bought and who helped at the 2017 May Christian Aid Sale at St Andrew’s and St George’s West. On 25 June 2o17 we were able to hand over a cheque for £90,000 to Sally Foster Fulton, head of Christian Aid Scotland.  Holding Fast tells the story of this year’s sale – you can  read it online here

The Sale of Pictures and Scottish Books took place from 26-28 October 2017, and raised over £13,000.

During the preparation and sale periods, we run dedicated  twitter and facebook  accounts.

The Christian Aid Book Sale at St Andrew’s and St George’s West

Since it started in 1974 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. The Sale is held annually, in May, in Christian Aid Week when thousands of churches and individuals throughout the UK devote the week to fundraising for Christian Aid to tackle poverty, and the causes of poverty,  throughout the world.

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?
