Starting on Monday 20th January 2020, Christ Church will be taking part in a sponsored reading event called a 'Readathon'.
The aim of this event is to raise money so that children in hospitals can have access to new books while they receive treatment. As well as raising money for a very worthwhile charity, our school will also receive book vouchers to the value of 20% of the total amount raised.
We would love if as many children as possible got involved with the event and asked family members and friends to sponsor them for all the reading they do during the two weeks! Sponsor money is due into school by Monday 10th February.
All you have to do is:
Take a look at what they plan to read, or help them complete their list of books to read. Remember they can read whatever they want: books, e-books, poetry, comics – anything goes! Sharing books is fine too (in fact recommended!) as well as listening to audio books.
Help your child find sponsors among family and friends. The easiest way to sponsor a child is at www.readforgood.org/sponsor (which family and friends can use too) or return the sponsor card with a cheque(s) or cash sent to school.
Please support your child’s sponsored read as much as you can. They’ll be helping kids in hospitals get books, as well as helping themselves. And our school receives free books worth 20% of our grand sponsorship total – so there really is something in it for everyone.
