Thank you for joining in!
Did you know that in 2017 one in four children aged 11 failed to reach the government’s required reading standards?
This can have lifelong consequences.
Schoolreaders helps to address this problem by finding volunteers to read one-to-one with children in primary schools, at no cost to the school. It costs Schoolreaders an average of just £15 to provide reading support to one child for a whole academic year.
By taking part in the Book Club Quiz Challenge you will be helping Schoolreaders to reach many more children this year.
One member of each Book Club registers as a ‘Book Club Challenge Host’ by clicking the link below and filling out our form.
We then send the Host a Book Club Challenge Pack, which includes our fun and challenging quiz sheet, bookmarks and postcards for your club members, and donations and Gift Aid forms for any money you raise for us.
The Host agrees with club members on a date on which to hold an event (probably as part of one of your regular meetings). We recommend holding your challenge close to World Book Day on 1st March 2018 and would ask that you have completed your fundraising and sent your donation and quiz answers to us by the closing date on 24th May.
On the agreed date, the Host leads the quiz and fills in the answer sheet. The clubs with the most correct quiz answers will be entered into a draw to win either a case of Prosecco, or Book Tokens for each member of your club. The quiz sheet is sent back to us with the donations and Gift Aid forms, as detailed below.
All participants who want to donate to Schoolreaders fill out their details on the Gift Aid form in the pack, and the host sends the form to us in the envelope provided. Donations can either be sent in the same envelope, or can be transferred to us online - simply use the bank details on the Donations Form.
