Our 50 BookBench sculptures that were on display on the streets of London this summer were sold at public auction at the Southbank Centre on 7 October 2014.
The evening was hugely enjoyable and we would like to thank everyone that came along to support us. It was a fantastic celebration of Books about Town and we raised an amazing total of £251,500 on the night. The funds will go towards our work to raise literacy levels in disadvantaged communities in the UK.
If you were unable to attend, you can purchase one of our few remaining auction catalogues as a souvenir here.
