Event description



Sponsored by EUROSPAR and VIVOXTRA

Registration: Free to all schools!

Get involved in ReadOn during Children’s Book Week, October 2017.

What is ReadOn?

ReadOn is Cancer Fund for Children’s school reading initiative that encourages pupils to read for fun whilst helping to support local children and young people living with cancer. During ReadOn children are sponsored to read for fun at home or in school. Pupils can read anything from comics to poetry. Younger children can listen to stories or use picture books. ReadOn is ideal for any age group.

When is ReadOn?

ReadOn can take place any week in the academic calendar. It is ideal for Children’s Book Week in October and World Book Day in March!

What will my school receive?

Schools will receive a ReadOn pack with posters and teachers resources. Every pupil will receive a bookmark and pencil as a thank you! ReadOn is also perfect for school assemblies. Our Schools Fundraiser, Rebecca, can come out to your school to introduce ReadOn and after for a thank you presentation in assembly.

Why take part?

Fun & Easy: Children have fun and feel inspired to read for pleasure

Educational: It is a fantastic way to introduce pupils to new authors and new books

Library Time: Schools have reported that more pupils visit the library

Winning: The top two fundraising schools and pupils will receive a trophy

Where does the money go?

Your school will make a difference to local children living with cancer across Northern Ireland. Last year ReadOn raised over £90,000 which has helped Cancer Fund for Children support families through a range of services including financial grants, therapeutic short breaks at Daisy Lodge in Newcastle and one to one support sessions with our Specialists.

Get involved!
