Postgraduate Research Archaeology Symposium

PGRAS Charity Book & Cake Sale

May 17, 2013
by Mark Almond

Every year the Post-graduate Research Archaeology Symposium (23rd-24th May) has a second-hand book sale and cake sale to raise money for charity.

In the last three years, we have commemorated loved ones by raising a total of £750 for Glencoe Mountain Rescue, the Mexican Association for the Fight Against Cancer, and Action on Addiction. This year, the collection is (fortunately!) not as personal as it has been in previous years. Nonetheless, the charities were chosen with care:

Macmillan Cancer Care relies on donations for 98% of their income.

Our second charity, The Brooke, provides veterinary care for work animals in Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Horses, donkeys and such.

Both the cake and book sale depend very much on your generosity. If you can donate any unwanted archaeological or non fiction books to the stall, please do. There is a box in the photocopy room (ground floor of 65a) marked “PGRAS BOOKS” to receive your donations. Alternatively, contact and we can arrange to collect the books from you. If you would like to bake a cake for us, contact us by email and let us know.

Also don’t forget to drop by the stalls next Thursday and Friday!
