Great news. Every primary school in my patch will receive £2000 of books this month thanks to a grant from the charity Bookmark.
I’m over the moon and paid a visit to the Cathedral School to take a look at their new deliveries. Huge thanks to Plymouth Children in Poverty for securing this money.
1 in 5 children in England don’t own a book of their own at home. After twelve years of austerity, it’s so important that cash-strapped schools can replenish their shelves.
