William Colenso Booksale Hits The Jackpot

Event Details

The final page has been turned on the William Colenso College book sale, but it managed to go out with a bang.

Sale co-ordinator Vicki Clarke said the weekend sale had been “spectacularly successful,” raising close to $18,000.

“We owe a huge thank you to the people of Napier, who have supported us with fantastic donations of books over the years and also streamed through the doors as customers.”

It was the final book sale for the college, which has been holding one annually for the past 30 years.
