Readathon 2018

We taking part in Read for Good’s Readathon, a wonderful and time-tested way of motivating children to read for pleasure.



Pupils choose whatever they like to read - from comics to classics, and audio books to blogs - and the money they raise in sponsorship helps to provide books for us, as well a regular supply of brand new books and storyteller visits to our local major children’s hospital and hospitals all over the UK. We will receive 20% of the money raised to buy books - it’s amazing!
