Books for Amnesty Norwich

Following the announcement of a further national lockdown we have closed our doors once more, in line with government guidance.

As soon as the restrictions change we will update this page and our social media feeds with news, so do keep checking.

In the meantime, some of our online shops are still open. See the links on the shop pages to keep your shelves topped up.

Please don’t leave donations by the shop whilst we are closed. We will let you know when we are able to take them again.

Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe, and see you very soon!
