The much-loved Monster Book Fair is returning and Variety, the children’s charity, is calling on all Tasmanians to support local kids in need.

During the month of May, Shiploads stores across Tasmania collected donations of pre-loved books, DVDs, games and puzzles which will be sold at the Monster Book Fair in July.

“We believe all children deserve the same opportunities in life regardless of ability or

background and the Variety Monster Book Fair is a fantastic fundraiser for us every year,” Variety Tasmania’s CEO Mohammad Aldergham said.

“As a self-funded organisation, we rely heavily on the contributions and generosity
of the community and our relationship with Shiploads has been instrumental in increasing our revenue and profile as a charity.

“The Monster Book Fair is a great day out for families and I encourage anyone looking for pre-loved quality books to come along and support kids in need.” This is Shiploads’ tenth year of supporting the Monster Book Fair.

“We all love to be involved in Variety’s Monster Book Fair each year, knowing funds raised help give Tassie kids the same opportunities in life, regardless of ability or background,” Shiploads managing director Ashley Wilson said.

“The Book Fair is a unique opportunity where our customers can donate pre-loved quality books, people at the fair can purchase cheap books, and the end beneficiary is Tasmanian children who directly benefit from the funds raised.

“It is a fantastic opportunity for Shiploads to give to the Tasmanian community.”

The Variety Monster Book Fair will run from 10am-4pm on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July at Princes Wharf 1, Hobart. All funds raised over the weekend will go towards supporting Tasmanian children accessing services at Variety.
