This is Pat, one of the volunteers working at the RSPCA Bookshop on Mill Road. As well as volunteering at this shop, Pat has been actively involved in the Traders’ Association and works for the Friends of Coldhams Common (a green space near to Mill Road).
In October 2013, the RSPCA Bookshop won a Cambridge Business Improvement District Award for best local knowledge. During a mystery shop visit, the staff at the RSPCA bookshop were the most helpful in terms of pointing out what was available to see and do across the city. Their award is on display in the window!
As you would expect, all income generated from book sales goes towards providing animal care services in Cambridgeshire.
The shop itself has all kinds of fiction and non-fiction books, including some antiquarian and academic. Take a visit to pick up a good read while donating to a good cause at the same time.
