Over Stratton books coin in the cash for charity

First published in News

THE licensees at the Royal Oak pub in Over Stratton, Jill and Chris Leaver, had the idea back in 2006 of setting up a charity bookcase.

To date the bookcase has raised more than £5,000 for charity.

Starting out with one bookcase and several boxes of books kindly donated by Ilminster Lions, two more cases have been added, plus a shelf dedicated to hardbacks.

Somerset Sight, The Labrador Rescue Trust, Ilminster Lions and the Annual Poppy Appeal have benefited from the generosity of the Royal Oak’s customers and readers.
