Help at the Book Fair

Lifeline’s Big Book Fair is the major fundraising event for Lifeline South Coast. The next Big Book Fair is being held at the Illawarra Sports Stadium, Berkeley on Friday 19, Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 March 2021.

Lifeline South Coast has a team of dedicated book volunteers who have been sorting, pricing and storing books for the past year in the lead up to the Big Book Fair. These people will become the team leaders at the Fair, but they will need around 100 people to help them over the course of the event.
