The annual Bookfest is a major event on Lifeline Newcastle & Hunter's fundraising calendar. Throughout 2012-13, Bookfest volunteers sorted and packed thousands of books in preparation for the big event.
This year's Bookfest will be on the 13th & 14th September 2014, at Newcastle Basketball Stadium. 9am-3pm Saturday & Sunday.
To find out where you can donate books please contact the administration office 4940 2000.
All of the hard work paid off in 2013, and thanks to our book-loving community over $26,000 worth of books were sold, with funds directly supporting the work of Lifeline Newcastle & Hunter.
Lifeline Newcastle & Hunter would like to thank Major Sponsor Acrobat Removals, Media Supporters The Star and NBN Television and the Newcastle Basketball Stadium staff for their wonderful contribution toward the continued success of this important event.
Thank you Acrobat Removals

This year they sponsored the cost of the venue, supplied 100's of boxes for storage of books, stored over 1,000 boxes of sorted books and provided a truck, drivers and manpower to deliver the books to the venue.
