A group of Limassol parents on Saturday rose over €2,000 for charity by selling second-hand books at the old port.

The event will also take place on Sunday, deputy Ypsonas mayor and member of the Limassol primary school parents association Kleanthis Karamanidis told the Cyprus Mail.

The books, which had been laid out on the ground of the district’s old port, were collected from parents’ associations across Limassol.

They were sold between 12 and 4pm for the symbolic amount of €1 per book.

“As of 3.30pm, about 2,000 books were sold,” Karamanidis said.

The event was initially scheduled only for Saturday, however, due to high demand and the fact that some books were not sold, will also take place over similar hours on Sunday, the deputy mayor explained.

All the profits will be donated to a charity, which will be decided at a later stage.
