Norwich Book Fair aids Christian work with refugees 

The Lord Mayor of Norwich has opened the 48th annual Feed the Minds Book Fair in St Andrew’s Church, Norwich, raising money to support church ministries assisting refugees in Tanzania.  

Opening the fair, Cllr David Fullman said the previous occasion on which he performed this duty was almost 30years ago in 1989.

The Norwich Feed the Minds Book Fair, will be selling thousands of second hand books in every genre at St Andrew's Church until Saturday June 24

The organising charity Feed the Minds seeks to help marginalised people across the world transform their lives through education.

Jonathan Piesse, a volunteer for the Book Fair, said: “This year money raised will go to assist a ministry called Rema Ministries which works in an area of Burundi close to Tanzania.  In particular they work with church leaders to assist women and unaccompanied orphans who left their home area as refugees, have returned and are now trying to reclaim their land.”  

The Book Fair will be open from Wednesday June 21 – Friday June 23, 10am – 5pm and Saturday June 24 from 9am to 1pm.
