Book Aid Warrington Closes

Book Aid is sad to announce our Warrington bookshop has closed after 10 years in the town.

Warrington Shop

We would like to thank all those who have donated and purchased books here over the years, which has helped to raise funds to support our overseas programme. Many shipping containers of Christian books and Bibles have been sent to Christian bookshops in Africa as a result.

The funds raised through the generosity of the owners Doug and Joy Wood, who so freely and willingly made the shop available to Book Aid, have made a difference across the world, as well as enabling people in the Warrington area to buy good quality secondhand books on their doorstep. Doug and Joy’s skill and knowledge of Christian literature meant that the stock was well suited to the needs of customers. It really has been a joy to work alongside them.

When they reluctantly stood down a couple of years ago Book Aid was thankful to firstly Pastor Stephen and then Ruth and Diane all of whom willingly gave their time and energy to keep the shop open on reduced opening hours for as long as possible.

Book Aid also wants to thank so many others who have given their time generously by volunteering in the shop over the years and we are sure that many people will be very disappointed now that the shop has closed.

Disappointed customers may not realise that Book Aid now sells books online (see the tab on our website book-aid.org) as well as from our 4 other shops – Lower Sydenham in London, Ranskill in North Nottinghamshire, Barnard Castle in Co Durham and Templepatrick in Northern Ireland.

If you have books to donate please do not leave them outside the shop but contact either:
