Liverpool City Readathon

We  joined forces with Liverpool Learning Partnership to run our Readathon across the whole city during Libraries Week (9-14 October 2017). We built a buzz about books in nurseries, schools and colleges by asking pupils to read what they love, helping us create a community of readers.

“We love the loop of children in our schools reading to bring stories into our hospital.

Imagination is a ticket out to the wider world when you’re in hospital. The power of stories is incredible and something I’ve seen first-hand at Alder Hey with Read for Good.”
