Readathon 2018

DGAT schools have each nominated two (or more) children to act as ambassadors in this years Readathon.  

Followng a workshop children will bring back their Readathon kits with everything they need to launch their schools read.  The plan is for everyone to complete their read before May half term. 

Their Readathon will help bring the power of stories to children in all of the UK's major children's hospitals (including Gloucestershire Royal).

Read for Good's vision is for all children in the UK to be given the opportunity, space and motivation to develop their own love of reading, benefiting them throughout their lives - for good. Schools running Readathon fund the charity's unique programme operating and restocking mobile bookcases and placing resident storytellers in all of the UK's major children's hospitals, as well as buying books for their own school libraries.
