Jacob’s Well Al Fresco Book Shop Raises Over £500 Despite Rain

Jacobs Well Tombola

The Jacob’s Well Charity, usually housed in the Christian Bookshop on Ladygate in , braved the late summer showers to set up a bookstall and tombola outside Toll Gavel United , and raised a staggering £550.

Beryl Beynon, Medical Director of the charity and organiser of the outdoor book sale, told   “Despite having to stop twice for the bad weather, we carried on for the rest of the day. We were very pleased with how things went, considering that we nearly did not set up at all due to the showery rain.”

Jacob’s Well Appeal has been raising money since 1982.  Originally set up to send urgently needed medical supplies and equipment to hospitals in Poland, the charity now provides medial relief to those who need it in Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa, promoting and supporting medical research and education.  Founder, Beverley GP Beryl Beynon and her husband Dr Peter Beynon personally ensure that the money they raise goes to the most in need.  They are now in their mid-seventies, and celebrated their Golden Wedding earlier this year, but they are not thinking of slowing down yet.
