VISITORS to a children’s hospice charity shop are being encouraged to pick up a blind date — with a book.
Bluebell Wood’s Dinnington store is encouraging shoppers to try novels they might not otherwise read.
The books at the Laughton Road shop, costing 49p to £1, are wrapped in plain paper with only a short description to help customers decide.
Shop manager Alison Firth said: “People really won’t be able to judge a book by its cover as the author’s name and title are under wraps.
“Their perfect paperback could be here just waiting to be found, if they come in here and take a look.
“The books, like everything bought here, will raise valuable funds to help Bluebell Wood support children and families both at the hospice and in their own homes.”
