Last year schools across Liverpool took part in the first Liverpool Readathon and raised over £16,000 so that children in hospital could have access to books and storyteller visits.
Building on the success of the 2017 event, we’re hoping to make Liverpool Readathon 2018 a fortnight full of reading and book-related fun! We’re working again with Read for Good to build a real buzz about books and reading for enjoyment across the city. We have special guest authors and a citywide Drop Everything and Read planned… it’s all getting very exciting! Make sure you put the fortnight of 5th-16th November into your diaries and watch this space for more information about what we have planned!
