Red Cross fundraiser
The Hamilton Book Fair has been an annual fundraising event organised by our dedicated volunteers for 24 years! Over the years, we have raised a considerable amount of donations to support the good work of New Zealand Red Cross in communities across Aotearoa and around the world.
We're collecting books all year around - you can drop off your unwanted books at our office, 422 Te Rapa Road, Hamilton or we can pick them (call 07 849 0285 ext 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Note that we do no accept vinyl records or video cassettes.
