YOUNG READERS IN WORCESTER START A NEW CHAPTER
THANKS TO TAYLOR WIMPEY DONATION!
Children at Hanley Castle High School are looking forward to reading some fantastic new books, following a generous donation by Taylor Wimpey.
The leading local housebuilder, which is building new homes at its Elgar Park development in Kempsey, has given £100 to the school to fund new books for the school library.
It’s all part of World Book Day, a national event which aims to encourage children to enjoy reading, and which this year celebrates its 20th birthday.
Lindsey Cooke, Headteacher at Hanley Castle High School, says: “We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this kind donation.
“It’s great to be able to add to the choice of books on offer in our library for the children to read and it’s also really inspiring for them to see how much a business like Taylor Wimpey values reading.
“Our eager readers are now really looking forward to getting stuck into their new books!”
The 20th annual World Book Day took place on Thursday 2nd March to celebrate authors, illustrators and books, and to get more children reading.
Elaine Cartwright, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Reading is such an important skill, as well as being great fun, so we are delighted to be making this donation to support Hanley Castle High School.
“It’s a great example of the way we are committed to supporting schools and other local organisations within the communities in which we build our new homes. We hope the children really enjoy these new books!”
