Game of Thrones star Owen Teale was in attendance at the Amnesty International Blackheath & Greenwich Group’s annual book sale which held on Saturday (15 June), boosting the profile of this already hugely popular yearly event.
The all-day book sale held in the Church of the Ascension, Dartmouth Row, Blackheath SE10 8BF (9 am-5 pm) is extremely popular with book-lovers across the capital.
Last year, the event raised more than £10,000 for Amnesty’s human rights work.
The sale is well known for its size and its range of high-quality books – from brand-new publications and hand-picked second-hand paperbacks, to review copies of recently-published novels.
Owen Teale – Ser Alliser Thorne in the hit fantasy TV series gave a short speech at the event, outlining his support for Amnesty’s children’s rights campaign which is challenging the Home Office’s profit-making fee for registering a child as a British citizen.
According to Rachel Errington, Amnesty International Blackheath & Greenwich Group Chair,
“With over 15,000 quality books at bargain prices in a church hall, this is possibly the biggest charity fundraising book sale you’ll ever come across.
Owen Teale is the recently-hanged Ser Alliser Thorne, in the popular epic series “Game of Thrones.”
