The school has been lucky enough to secure funding for much needed library books/educational books. The Hedley Foundation kindly donated £2,500.00 for this project.
We found that Usborne Books had exactly what we required. We contacted Amanda Saunders (Area Sales) who was very helpful in supporting us with this project. Usborne Books donated an additional £1,500.00 through the sales the school did and so, in total, the grand sum of £4,000 has been raised to support the pupils with their reading skills and increase their self-esteem.
We would like to thank both the Hedley Foundation and Usborne Books for their generosity.
The picture shows a variety of books we were able to purchase. From left to right are Amanda Saunders, Usborne Books, Sara Hack, Principal of the school, and Sue Horscroft, Fundraising Officer.
