DCM’s 24th annual, fundraising Bookfair will be held on Saturday 17 August 2019 at Shed 6, Queen’s Wharf, from 8am-6pm.
DCM works with people in the city of Wellington who are experiencing homelessness, supporting them to find and sustain housing, and to journey to wellbeing. We have adopted the byline “together we can end homelessness” which reflects the many people in our city who are part of our work – from the dentists who volunteer time at the DCM Dental Service to the many Wellingtonians who love and support our iconic annual DCM Bookfair.
This year DCM is celebrating its 50th birthday, and we are holding our 24th DCM Bookfair. With some 70,000 books, as well as vinyl, CDs and DVDs, it is an event that all Wellington book lovers look forward to. Mark the date in your diary – Saturday 17 August – come along with a group of friends and take the opportunity to enjoy brunch and a catch-up together while you are in the city. The local cafés are often full of our supporters browsing through their purchases or fuelling up before they head to the Bookfair. It’s a great day out and, even better, an opportunity to be part of the solution to homelessness in our city.
And as people who love to read, you will enjoy reading the uplifting stories we share on our website – about the success that your support makes possible – visit www.dcm.org.nz/success-stories
Because together we CAN end homelessness in our city.
