Bournville Primary School held a sponsored read with Usborne and raised £756, thanks to generous donations from families and friends.

The children’s book publisher has added a further 60 per cent of the total raised onto the donation – which means the pupils have received £1,210 worth of new books.

Any schools interested in adding to their library stocks can hold sponsored reads with Usborne.

Sam Goodger, a bookseller with the publisher, is backing the Mercury’s Books For Schools campaign and offering to help schools organise sponsored reads for their pupils.
