Over £420k raised for our charities since 2006
Volunteers from the Bookshop met with representatives from CHAS this afternoon (and Robin the mini Hairy Highland Coo) to celebrate the Bookshop raising over £70,000 (£73, 219 to be precise) for CHAS, one of the six charities we support. It was interesting to hear how the money raised helps children with life-shortening conditions and their families. A huge thank you to our volunteers, people who donate books and people who buy books !

Voices from the Bookshop
Our volunteers past and present all have a story to tell which feed into the history of Pitlochry Station Bookshop. Twelve of these have been captured in a series of podcasts.
The interviews are a fascinating account of how a small community enterprise for charity was established and how different people contributed their experience for the benefit of others.
Thanks go to Bookshop volunteer, Viv Cree, whose idea this was and who conducted the interviews and to Heartland FM for technical support and for hosting the series.

Books to Donate?
Here's what to do
Our book donors are the lifeblood of the Bookshop. We are delighted to receive books and hope you will help us by abiding by the following guidelines.
Books can be brought in at any time during Bookshop opening hours. If possible they should be in bags.
All books should be in good, clean condition but we can not accept Readers Digest, Encyclopedias, Bibles and magazines.
Small Print: Please note that books, once donated, become the property of Pitlochry Station Bookshop.
Unless an alternative arrangement is agreed at the time of donation, our Constitution requires that the sale proceeds will be divided among our chosen charities.
