Enable Ireland customers in Longford are being offered a free book with every purchase on Thursday, March 2 as the charity marks World Book Day 2017.
As an organisation providing services to over 5,500 children and adults with disabilities, Enable Ireland is keen to promote reading in customers of all ages, while encouraging new customers into their charity shops.
Commercial Manager, Oonagh O’Connor, says “Our books are donated by the public to Enable Ireland and so are on sale at a fraction of the price for a new book. People are always surprised at the range of books we have in stock and the fact that we regularly have very recent releases in there.”
Ciara McGlade, Senior Speech and Language Therapist with Enable Ireland says “We know from our work with children, teenagers and adults with disabilities, what long term benefits reading can have on people of all abilities so it’s fitting that our charity shops would promote reading. There really is a fantastic range of books on offer in our shops so you’re bound to find something to suit every age and ability.”
The organisation’s charity shops - the shop in Longford town is located at Midland Court - are stocked through public donations made through house collections, textile banks, corporate collections, donations directly into Enable Ireland’s shops and services and donations made into TK Maxx stores nationwide.
