Win a visit from Bear Grylls!

Get your pupils reading with Readathon’s sponsored read and Bear Grylls could be dropping in to your school to inspire pupils.

Order a free resource kit to run our sponsored read and your school will be entered into a draw to win an exclusive visit from Bear Grylls himself.

Readathon is so simple and it really does work:

  • MOTIVATION – pupils are motivated because the money they raise by reading buys books and storytellers for children in hospital
  • INCLUSION – pupils choose what and how they read, from comics to classics, so reluctant readers give it a go and able readers read more widely
  • REWARDS – your school gets free books worth 20% of your sponsorship total and a £10 National Book Token
  • RESULTS – schools who run our sponsored read attain higher results, especially if they run it year on year

Order your free kit – all we ask is that you use it!

Order your free resource kit to run your sponsored read anytime in 2018/2018 academic year and Bear Grylls could be dropping into your school.

We’ll send you a kit with sponsor cards and bookmarks for each pupil, a DVD to launch your sponsored read in assembly, posters and much more! In fact, everything you need to make your sponsored read brilliantly successful!

  • Terms and conditions
    • All schools who order a kit by 30 June 2019, to run Readathon in the 2018/2019 academic year, will be entered into the draw to win a school visit from Bear Grylls. Bear will aim to visit in person, but the visit may be via Skype for practical reasons.
    • The visit will take place in the 2019/2020 academic year; the school will be offered a couple of dates and must choose one. The date cannot be changed once confirmed. No other prizes are available.
    • Schools must be willing to participate in publicity.

Readathon gets pupils discovering all sorts of cool adventures and kids stuck in hospital beds will get brand new books so that they are able to go on their own adventures too. Awesome!

Author of  the Bear Grylls Adventure series of books, Bear would love to inspire your pupils in person!
