Run a Readathon

Run a Readathon

Join our Readathon adventure to get reading on World Book Day!

World Book Day is very happy to support the work of Read For Good. Each World Book Day, thousands of schools across the country join in the celebrations by taking part in Readathon. Organised by Read For Good, it’s a brilliant way to get everyone reading what they love – from comic annuals to classics, and audio books to ebooks – it’s all about choosing whatever you enjoy reading the most!

Everyone is motivated to read all the more, because the money raised in sponsorship helps provide much-needed brand new books and regular storyteller visits to children in all of the UK’s major children’s hospitals, as well as books for schools.

Your school benefits too – 20% of the total raised buys book vouchers for your school library!

It’s very easy – schools can sign up for a FREE Readathon resource kit containing everything needed to run a brilliantly successful Readathon.

Reading is like flying – it can carry you to different worlds. So hurray for Read for Good, which helps launch so many children on that exciting journey.” Julia Donaldson
