At the end of last year, we took part in a sponsored silence to raise money for the National Literacy Trust. Some of the things they do are:
- Provide disadvantaged children with free books, opening up a new world of reading;
- Help parents to support their children’s literacy and language skills;
- Help disadvantaged teenagers to improve their communication skills in preparation for working life;
- Support families and adults with community projects that develop reading and writing skills.
The sponsored silence was based around Chris Haughton’s wonderful book, ‘Shh! We have a Plan!’.
We raised £43.63 for the charity. Thank you very much to all those who supported us!
