An annual book fair which raises money for a charity supporting refugees in east Africa takes place in Norwich later this month.

The Feed the Minds Book Fair, which started in 1970, will be held at St Andrew's Church on St Andrew's Street from June 13 to June 16.

Proceeds from the event go to the Christian charity Feed the Minds, which supports education and training for marginalised people across the world.

Money raised at this years' book fair will support a project in Burundi, where Feed the Minds and Rema Ministries are helping to reintegrate returning refugees who fled the country.

Thousands of books will be on sale covering a wide range of genres, from fiction and history to gardening and children's books.

It begins on June 13 at 10am, and will be open Wednesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm. On June 16, it will open from 9am to 1pm and there will be a silent auction at 11am.
