Book Aid Announces Death of Ada Hiley

Ada HileyIt is with enormous sadness that Book Aid has to announce the death of Ada Hiley on Saturday 2nd September.

Many will know that Ada was the co-founder of Book Aid, along with her husband Bob and she worked tirelessly and wholeheartedly for the Lord setting up and running the Book Aid bookshop here in London and overseeing the other BookAid bookshops around the country

Ada was 86 years old and was at work on 31 July the day before she had surgery for a longstanding serious health issue.  That surgery was not successful and after a number of serious complications she did not recover.  She finally went to be with her Lord and Saviour on Saturday morning.  Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly.

Release of Zimbabwe Container

Container sent to Zimbabwe Released

One year after the container was dispatched to Zimbabwe full of books it has finally been released!  When it arrived at Harare last year  it was impounded out of the blue and a tax of 40% and $1 per kilo had been imposed.  We and our container partners have spent a year praying for its release- unable to pay the tax imposed.  Today we have heard that they won their case against the company who have agreed to allow the books to leave the port.

Our partner writes:

“Thank you so much for helping us pray and all glory we give it back to Him. We have accumulated storage charges (over $4000) yes but it is manageable compared to what we could have paid in tax.  We have started selling the books now and trusting God for good sales.”

Praise God!

STOP PRESS – South and East UK Book Collection

Book Aid London

Book Aid London

Book Aid London is restructuring its premises in the next 5 weeks in the lead up to Christmas.  We are excited to see God’s provision unfolding but it is a challenge to deal with the constant supplies of books into the London warehouse while we do so!

So for the next 8 weeks we have asked our collectors who rely on the London van removing the donated books from them to make every effort to hold on to books and free us from collecting for a short while.  We appreciate your understanding at this time if our collectors are unable to accept your offer of books during December and January.

Warrington Shop to Re-Open in October

Book Aid Warrignton shop

Book Aid Warrington shop

Book Aid is very pleased to announce that plans are underway to reopen the Warrington Book Shop from October 2016.  The shop will be managed by Pastor Stephen Holland and his team of volunteers. It will open on Mondays and Saturdays from 10-4.  Stephen has spoken of his passion to see good Christian literature available on the UK high street.

Prayer Requested

Please pray that word will spread that Book Aid is opening again.  We are thrilled that Joy and Doug Wood continue to make the premises available for the ministry which has played a significant part in raising funds to support Book Aid’s overseas ministry.

Closure of Book Aid Warrington Shop

Book Aid Warrington shopBook Aid is sad to have to announce the closure of their shop in Warrington.  Joy and Doug Wood have run the shop since 2009 with the help of a committed team of volunteers, but as a result of recent health problems they are now unable to continue. Discussions are underway with other Christian retailers about the future of the Warrington building.

Book Aid has benefitted enormously from the commitment and knowledge of the Christian literature ministry Joy and Doug have brought to the Warrington shop during the last 8 years.  As a book collecting point in the Merseyside area and as a retail shop raising funds to help send containers to our overseas partners their contribution has been significant.  Their involvement will be sorely missed and we wish them every blessing for the future.

The Warrington Book Aid shop will close on 30 July 2016.

Book Aid is continuing to sell books in the UK from its 4 other shops in:

For information about other collecting points or for more details of our other shops please check out our website or phone 0208 778 2145.

We would like to thank all the staff, customers and donors for their support at Warrington during the last 8 years.
