The current total from our year 8 Readathon and the non-uniform day before half-term is an amazing £1932.15!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this!
This money will go to help children in hospital. For them, books and stories are particularly important – they comfort, distract, reassure and entertain. Read for Good provides a regular supply of brand new books along with storyteller visits to brighten up the days of children in all of the UK’s main children’s hospitals. Children unable to leave their beds can choose books from a specially designed mobile bookcase which wheels right up to their bedside, and because they are brand new, the books are safe for those at high risk of infection.
One of the hospitals to benefit is the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children –
Northern Ireland’s only children’s hospital with 83 beds and around 7,500 in-patients each year.
