Pendle Reading Challenge

Your business could help to boost children's life chances in Pendle

The average reading age in Pendle is well below the national average.

We want to make Pendle a Reading Borough, to improve student attainment and enhance children's life chances.

You can help support the Pendle Reading Challenge financially in a range of ways:

  • Author visits to school cost £300 - £500
  • £25 provides one child with 12 books a year
  • £20 pays for a student to attend a Reading Ambassadors’ conference

But any amount welcome is welcome to support young readers and help them read to achieve!

If you want to help, email Cheryl Lee at Lord Street Primary School, or email Cathy Bridges, Lead Practitioner for Literacy at Park High School.
