Read for Good Sponsored Read

As part of our World book Day celebration this year, we are running a Read for Good Sponsored Read and we’d love your child to join in. We are starting today, and will be running the sponsored read for the next two weeks (ending on the 21st of March).


Pupils can choose whatever they want to read - from comics to classics and audio books to blogs - they are not being assessed, and it’s all about reading for fun. We hope they are motivated to read because the money they raise in sponsorship helps to provide a regular supply of brand new books and a resident storyteller to every major children’s hospital in the UK. The children have watched a video which shows how the money we raise can help.


All we ask is that you take a look at the sponsorship card, see what your child chooses to read and then help your child to find sponsors among family and friends.


You can sponsor a child online at  Search for “Marshgate” and the donation amount will be added to our running total. If you are unable to sponsor online, cash can be brought into school by the 22nd March.


Not only does this opportunity allow us to help children in hospitals get access to books, we also will receive some books for school equal to the value of 20% of the grand sponsorship total.


Thank you for any support you can give,

Mr Mollett and the English team.
