Book Fair Volunteer

Lifeline's Big Book Fair is the major fundraising event for Lifeline’s 24-hour crisis support service in the Illawarra and South Coast.


It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of the 20-22 March Lifeline’s Big Book Fair at the Illawarra Sports Stadium, Berkeley.

The accelerating COVID-19 situation means that large public gatherings of more than 500 people are not in the interest of the population and should be avoided.

We thank our hardworking volunteers for their efforts toward this event. And apologise to our loyal customers.

Lifeline South Coast will remain informed of this evolving situation and advise of decisions around our Big Book Fair when the time is right.
