Lucy starts her charity Readathon!

22 February 2021

During the most recent lockdown, Lucy (8G), has started a ‘Readathon’ to raise funds for Book Aid International. The charity sends books to disadvantaged and marginalised people across the world.  Education by reading helps to empower people to change their lives for the better.  It costs just £2 for Book Aid to send a book and in 2020 they sent over 865,000 books to schools, libraries, universities, hospitals and refugee camps in 19 countries. 

Lucy is aiming to read 20 books over 4 months and is already onto her second book (only 18 more to go!) and would be very grateful for any support towards this challenge to further the work of this inspirational charity. For more information, or to donate to the cause, please visit the Just Giving page.
