The Liverpool Readathon

Liverpool was the first UK city to unleash our Readathon across multiple schools, colleges and nurseries, with our read running in 2017 and 2018 in conjunction with the wonderful Liverpool Learning Partnership.

The Liverpool Readathon has raised more than £33,000 for our charity, which will soon be updated with their latest citywide Readathon which ran from 2 – 13 March 2020. Once again, over 100 schools across the city for reading, raising and being amazing! Thousands took part in our citywide Drop Everything and Read (#DEARLiverpool) on the final Friday,. Pupils had a great time hearing the inspirational Children’s Laureate Cressida Cowell at The Epstein Theatre, who then went on meet young patients enjoying the books that Liverpool schools fund at Alder Hey Hospital.
