Liverpool Readathon 2022

Over 20,000 children from schools across the city and beyond are raring to read in a celebration of reading and the power of stories under the umbrella of the fourth Liverpool Readathon.

New for 2022: we’re challenging schools and the wider community to join our Two Million Minute Track My Read Challenge.

You can get reading as part of this year’s Liverpool Readathon in three* main ways:

Run our sponsored read

Order your kit by Feb 14th to join other Liverpool schools who are able to run our traditional sponsored read. Money raised keeps our mobile bookcase at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital stocked with brand-new books to brighten days.

Take part in #DEARLiverpool

At 10am this World Book Day we want schools and the wider world across the city to drop everything and read for ten minutes (or as long as you like). You can even log your collective reading minutes towards our Two Million Minute target.

Record your reading minutes

New for 2022: we’re challenging schools and the wider community to collectively log two million reading minutes over the Liverpool Readathon via our Track My Read tool.

Ready, steady, READ!
