We're In The Paper: Waterstones Donation!

Pupils at Broadford & Mead Primary schools had a welcome boost to their libraries with a donation from Waterstones. The high street book retailer sent in four boxes of books to each school which have been added to the library.

I was so excited to see the Enchanted Wood in the boxes. Enid Blyton is one of my favourite authors!

Our Spinebreakers are going to be very busy indeed as they read and review these new books.

Waterstones have been working with Book Trust since 2013 to help make sure that nobody misses out on the life-changing benefits that reading can bring.
As a founding partner of Book Trust’s Children's Reading Fund campaign, they have raised well over £200,000 to support libraries and reading programmes, including the Letterbox Club to help improve the educational outlook for children in care.

We continue to work closely with Book Trust on everything from fundraising to the Waterstones Children’s Laureate, highlighting the importance of reading for pleasure and helping transform lives by getting children and families reading.
Diana Gerald, CEO of Book Trust
Our staff, parents & Governors all champion the need for our pupils to be able to read by the age of 6. That means they can then access high quality stories that will inspire a love of literacy. Waterstone's very generous gift to both of our schools will provide more of these books and for that we are very grateful.
