Readathon - Reading for life
Pupils from Watten Primary School have raised £540.30 for Readathon
Readathon is a national sponsored reading event that is held in schools annually. All the money raised is donated equally between CLIC Sargent and The Roald Dahl Foundation. The money is spent locally, caring for children and young people suffering from cancer, Hodgkin’s disease, leukaemia epilepsy, blood disorders or acquired brain injury.

Head Teacher Mrs L Mackay said: “We are delighted to have taken part in Readathon. It encouraged our children to read for enjoyment and at the same time help other children in the area who are not as well as themselves.”

Brough Girling, Readathon Chairman, said: “We are thrilled that children from Watten Primary school have enjoyed reading lots of books and we, and the charities, would like to thank them for all the money they have raised.

· Over ½ million children read for Readathon each year
· Each of those children, on average read 3 or 4 books for their own pleasure
· They raised £1.1 million last year to help sick children
