The Working Together Charity Bookshop is located in the south Shropshire market town of Craven Arms.
The shop stocks a wide range of books, including fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, local history books, reference books, rare and antiquarian books – as well as jigsaws, CDs, DVDs, records, sheet music, maps and local tourist guides.
About the bookshop
The Bookshop, which was previously run by the Furniture Scheme, transferred to Working Together in September 2021 with the intention of not only providing a valuable income stream for the charity, but also an opportunity for our members to be involved in some of the sorting and cataloguing of donations and, in the longer term, some opportunities for supported volunteering/work experience in the shop itself, together with a welcoming destination for travel training and independent living skills.
The bookshop is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who manage the day to day running of the site, including book sales and donations.
If you would like to donate any good quality books, please drop them in to us at Rockspring Community Centre, Ludlow, in the first instance, so that the shop doesn’t get overwhelmed.
Every book donated is carefully valued by our resident expert volunteers and saleable books go into the Charity Bookshop where old and out of print books are particularly sought after by our customers.
All unsaleable books go to a book bank for pulping, so no single book will go to landfill.
