A HUGE book fair is set to take place to raise money to help Palestinian students come to the North-East.

The Durham Palestine Education Trust is holding the Easter book fair from Saturday, April 13 to Easter Monday, April 22.

More than 15,000 new and used books will be on sale in the Pemberton Rooms on Palace Green, Durham.

Proceeds go to the charity, which finances scholarships for Palestinian graduates to take Master’s degree courses at Durham University.

Organiser Vin McIntyre said: “Thanks to our many book donors, our book fairs just keep on getting bigger and better.

"Customers are always delighted with the range and quality they find. Now in its 6th year, this Easter event has become an important part of Durham scene. ”
