Cressida thanks Readathon schools

Waterstones Children’s Laureate and Read for Good patron, Cressida Cowell hosted a special live event on June 23 to say thank you to all the schools, pupils, teachers and librarians who completed a Readathon during the pandemic – getting pupils reading despite the most trying of circumstances.

Read for Good offered the exclusive event to any school who’d run a Readathon since the first lockdown started back in March 2020. The charity wanted to thank schools who kept reading and raising over the most challenging and demanding of times. Some 7,000 children across almost 300 schools and classes registered for the live event – including some students self-isolating at home.
