Taylor Wimpey is donating book vouchers to schools across the UK to celebrate World Book Day.

We are giving away the books to school libraries as part of the national event which aims to encourage children to enjoy reading.

The 17th annual World Book Day took place on Thursday 6th March to celebrate authors, illustrators and books, and to get more children reading.

Karen Bremner, Head of Marketing for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our high-quality new homes, and these donations are an excellent example of the way we can help schools and other local organisations.

“It’s important for children to read as often as they can, either in class or at home with their families, and these vouchers mean the schools can add to the choice of books on offer in their libraries and classrooms.

“We hope this will encourage children to develop a real passion for reading and that they will carry this love of books into adulthood.”
