Do charity shops actually check the books they receive for sell on value or simply put them on display ?

I was in a charity shop a few weeks ago. A lady was browsing through the books and i heard her say 'well look at this' and pulled out a fistful of notes that had been left in the book... turned out to be 200 euros

the charity lady couldn't wait to run over and grab them out of her hand ...and made it quite clear no effort would be made to trace the donor

i no longer support charity shops

It would be impossible to trace the donor if you found any money, how would you go about it?

Well, thanks for the heads up, I shall tell the people incharge at Reach Out and I'm sure they will put a sign up for the people who do the books to have a quick flick through the pages just incase. I'm sure if money was found in any of the books we would class it as a donation and it would go into the funds of the charity. No way would you be able to find out who it belonged to.
