BOOKarama 2024

Our 18th BOOKarama was successfully concluded during the 3 days Friday 26th to Sunday 28th April 2024.

Our Thanks

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside (and its Charitable Trust) would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed to this year’s event.

We would like to express our appreciation to the generous donors who contributed items, as well as the suppliers who offered discounts or provided items free of charge.

We are immensely grateful to our fellow members from the sister Rotary Club of Christchurch Avon-Otakaro, the residents of Burlington Village, and our own members, families, and friends for their valuable contributions to our project.

We would also like to give a special shout out to Marist Western Suburbs Rugby League Club and Odyessy House for their tremendous help with the heavy lifting involved in moving the books.

Lastly, we want to thank all the people who travelled from near and far to purchase items during the 3-day sale. Your support has been instrumental to our success, and we hope you enjoy countless hours of relaxation through reading, listening, or watching.

After a bit of a rest, we will as usual practice review what worked and what didn’t and start planning for BOOKarama 2025 likely to be some time in April 2025. Check back on our website for information later this year.

Please note that unfortunately we don’t currently have any capacity to accept donations of items for our next BOOKarama outside of our advertised collection period which starts usually mid March.
