Call for volunteers and stock at Malvern's Amnesty International book shop

Malvern Editorial 27th Jan, 2024   0

A NON-PROFIT charity book shop in Malvern is calling for donations and volunteers to help stock and run its new store.

Books for Amnesty in Malvern has been raising funds for the human rights charity – Amnesty International – for 25 years at it’s store on Edith Walk.

The charity’s second hand book shop is now moving to 12 Church Walk, Malvern and is calling for people to donate their unused books, commit to volunteering in the store or both.

Amnesty International has been fighting for human rights improvements for half a century.

The organisation was awarded the 1977 Nobel Peace Prize for its “defence of human dignity against torture” and the United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights in 1978.

A spokesperson for Books for Amnesty Malvern said: “If you would like to join an enthusiastic, friendly team, who love books and want to support the work of Amnesty International, we would love to hear from you.




“The work involves selling books at the counter, sorting, pricing and displaying book donations and, the most enjoyable bit, interacting with our lovely and interesting customers.”

The store is set to open in early 2024 with an official date to be announced soon.


To enquire about volunteering email [email protected] or knock on the shop door between 10am and 4pm – Tuesday to Friday (12 Church Walk, Great Malvern).
