Locals were asked to ‘clean up and clean out’ their bookshelves last weekend at a Bouddi Book Bazaar held on Easter Saturday at Wagstaffe Hall.
The Wagstaffe to Killcare Community Association decided to replace their annual Trash and Treasure event this year following a limit on numbers due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The smaller event instead focused on selling books, pictures, records, DVDs and art.
Event co-coordinator, Robyn Warbuton, said organisers were pleased at the turn out with a huge amount of books sold.
“We were really pleased to raise around $2,000 for a minor event – we usually raise $5,000 with Trash and Treasure,” Warbuton said.
“Funds raised will go towards our current project which is supplying a BBQ and shelter nearby Killcare Surf Life Saving club.
“We do feel like we’re doing a service to the community.”
The Association is hoping to host the traditional Trash and Treasure event next year.
