Norwich Book Fair supports project for Burundi refugees 

The annual Feed the Minds Book Fair, now in its 49th year in Norwich, will be held at St Andrew’s Church on June 13-16 to raise funds for a Christian charity supporting returning refugees in East Africa.

The Feed the Minds Book Fair is an annual fixture in Norwich’s calendar.  Started in 1970 the proceeds of the fair go to Christian charity Feed the Minds, which supports education and training for marginalised people across the world.  
 
Thousands of books will be on sale covering a wide range of genres from fiction to history, gardening to children’s books, academic to Christian literature.
 
The Book Fair will be opened by the Lord Mayor of Norwich, Councillor Martin Schmierer on Wednesday June 13, at 10am and is open Wednesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm every day and Saturday June 16, from 9am to 1pm.  On Saturday at 11am there will be a Silent Auction.
 
Feed the Minds believes that education makes a world of difference. Through education and training they provide the skills and knowledge for individuals in the Global South to transform their own lives and communities.

The money raised at this years’ book fair will go to support a project in Burundi, where Feed the Minds and Rema Ministries are helping to reintegrate returning refugees who fled the country.
 
The organisers of the book fair are looking for willing helpers to come along from Monday June 11 to set up the fair, sort books and more. Please contact 01603 454799 for more information.
