We raised £97.60 for The Book Trust by all wearing our pyjamas to school on Friday 7 June. We joined children across the country to raise money so that no child misses out on the magic of the bedtime story.
All money raised will go towards funding The Book Trust’s work in supporting more families. For just £25, they could provide 15 pre-school children living in women’s refuge centres with their own book pack; £50 could provide six families with additional support through their children’s centre to develop a reading habit.
Children who don’t have access to books and stories in the early years start school a year behind their peers, a gap that widens as they get older.
