Read to succeed literacy campaign set for its 4th year

With over 5000 books donated by the local community for my literacy campaign over the last three years, it is now time to look ahead to next summer and our fourth year of the scheme.

With over 5000 books donated by the local community for my literacy campaign over the last three years, it is now time to look ahead to next summer and our fourth year of the scheme.

The Read to Succeed Campaign started in 2016 after teachers raised with me the difficulty of encouraging children to read throughout the summer holidays.  It gives year 4 pupils a book of their own to keep to start the summer reading, with those who then complete the local library Summer Reading Challenge entered into a prize draw including free cinema tickets and free swimming. 

We really appreciate the Read to Succeed Campaign, our children love receiving a book and it motivates them to read throughout the summer

This year we will be running the scheme again throughout June, with the support of partners including the Bishop of Ely, local primary schools, libraries and The Cambs Times. A big thank you to all the local businesses, councillors and residents who have supported us so far.

Author, Journalist and Philosopher born in Fenland, William Godwin once said, “He that loves reading has everything within his reach” and for me, this rings true. Reading regularly and reading for fun can open new worlds, new ideas and new possibilities for children.
