A Bookfair was held in aid of the Readathon charities in November.
Readathon aims to promote whole school reading and also collect money for charity as some girls are sponsored to read by family and friends. It takes place at St Saviour’s every year in the second half of the Autumn term.
As part of the event, girls in lower school (and staff) read during the last 20 minutes of lesson 4 everyday for one week, whatever lesson they’re in.
The library held a Bookfair (new books - discounted to only £1 or £2.00 each) making £99 for the charity, and the total amount raised from students and the bookfair was a very good £400.
Where the money goes:
The money raised by Readathon is donated equally to CLIC Sargent and The Roald Dahl Foundation, who between them spend it primarily caring for children and young people in the UK suffering from cancer, Hodgkin's disease, leukaemia, epilepsy, blood disorders or acquired brain injury.
Charity ‘Bring and Buy’ Booksale
This sale of donated books has raised
for WaterAid . This is a great result as the average prices were only 10-30p a book , and is the most we have raised from this sale in the last few years.
Many thanks to all those girls who donated books, who helped to sell the books ,and to those who bought them.
