Colchester Samaritan Book Fair
The 2018 Colchester Samaritans Book Fair was helped by the retired Gurkha community from Abbeygate House in the town. It’s become an annual event which the retired Gurkha Veterans look forward to helping with every year. They transport thousands of books for the Samaritans charity and this year the event raised almost £23,000. A phenomenal amount!
