Delight for Leeds bookworms

Have your say

Young readers at Middleton Primary School in Leeds have 55 new books to choose from thanks to a donation from a healthcare company. GSK also provided a new bookcase as part of their charity partnership with Save the Children and literary organisation Beanstalk. Staff at the pharmaceutical firm bought and collected the books themselves.

Deputy head Sarah Latham was delighted with the contribution:

“It is incredibly important that children have access to interesting books and reading support. Learning to read can unlock a world of opportunity for children. It boosts their chances of achieving at school and of finding work.”
