Reading for a Reason - RNIB

RfRD Folder CoverSchools helping to raise money for charity by taking part in Read for RNIB Day can win a year's supply of children's books, thanks to leading sight loss charity the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and Walker Books.

Schools across the UK are being asked to do something reading related from hosting a Mad Hatter's Sensory Tea Party, a Reading Relay, Come as a Character Day or even a Story Sleepover and take part in an annual fundraising appeal, Read for RNIB Day. All funds raised will help provide reading services and equipment to blind and partially sighted people across the UK.

Participants can pick any date in October and enjoy an activity that will unite children, teachers and parents in making reading fun, whilst helping other children who can't see the same books.  Schools also have the option to keep 20 per cent of any money raised. So Read for RNIB Day can benefit not only blind and partially sighted children, but also the school taking part. Schools that raise £400 or more will be entered into a prize draw to win a year's supply of Walker children's books!
