Illawarra - Lifeline's 'record breaking' book fair



Lifeline’s Big Book Fair has raised a record-breaking $171,000 for Lifeline South Coast services and programs in the Illawarra and South Coast.

Lifeline says more than 5,500 people walked through the doors over the weekend to safely hunt through 80,000 books to find their favourite treasures, reportedly, one lucky collector took home a rare edition of The Green Ray by Jules Verne which sold for $1000. 

Lifeline South Coast CEO, Renee Green, says she is blown away by the generosity and patience from the community.
