PUPILS at Bradley Green primary school are celebrating World Book Day with a bundle of 10 new books for their school library, donated by the Morrisons Foundation in partnership with the National Literacy Trust.
Laura Rushton, Community Champion at Hyde, presented the books to the school, saying: “I’m so proud to be helping kids in our community through the donation of these wonderful books.
The challenges of the past couple of years really have been difficult for us all, but particularly younger children who not only missed out on school, but also just having time with their friends and teachers. I hope these stories will give children at Bradley Green some fun as well as help them find a love of reading.”
In total over 5,000 books are being donated to school libraries in communities throughout England, Scotland and Wales as part of the partnership between the two charities to help inspire and nurture a love of reading for over 130,000 primary school children who will benefit directly from this project.
