The sponsored read will take place over the next few weeks to encourage and inspire a love of reading, as well as raise money for children’s charities: Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, CLIC Sargent - Cancer Care for Children, Together for Short Lives and Readwell. All of these charities try to alleviate some of the problems faced by children with an illness by providing specialist nurses, social workers and medical workers, as well as support for the family.
The English department will be recognizing individual achievements and aim to give special acknowledgements to girls for their fundraising and reading efforts. The literary merit award recognizes individual achievement with reading. All prize winners will receive a certificate and a book token for Waterstone’s.
Since Talbot Heath started participating in Readathon in 2000, the school has raised well over £17,000. Let’s make this year another successful year of fundraising.
Happy reading girls!
