Book Fair Volunteer
Lifeline’s Big Book Fair is the major fundraising event for Lifeline’s 24-hours crisis support service in the Illawarra and South Coast.
Help at the Book Fair
Lifeline’s Big Book Fair is the major fundraising event for Lifeline South Coast. The next event is being held on Friday 15 – Sunday, 17 March 2024 at the Illawarra Sports Stadium, Berkeley.
Lifeline South Coast has a team of dedicated book volunteers who have been sorting, pricing and storing books for the past year in the lead up to the Big Book Fair. These people will become the team leaders at the Fair, but they will need around 100 people to help them over the course of the event.

Event Volunteer Roles
There are several roles available for volunteers during the actual event:
- Customer service/information volunteers to assist customers and re-stocking of tables.
- Tally table volunteers who help tally books before the customer gets to the cash registers.
- Cash register operators and assistants.
- Customer exit surveys so that our next Book Fair will be even bigger and better.
