Local housebuilder Compendium Living has donated £300 worth of Book Tokens to Spring Cottage Primary School to mark World Book Day (7th March 2019) and improve the schools book collection, encouraging the children to read more.
Compendium Living, which is currently building at its development The Leeway 2 in Ings, kindly donated the vouchers to the school to choose the books to add to its library.
Pupils attended school dressed up as their favourite book characters in celebration of World Book Day, where children across the country are encouraged to come together to appreciate reading.
Frances Taylor, Year Two Class Teacher and English Leader at Spring Cottage Primary School said: “We are delighted to have been given £300 worth of book tokens to spend on resources for our classes. As a school, we have worked hard to promote a love of reading and our pupils now see reading as a treat.
“These tokens will give us an opportunity to revitalize our reading corners and give children a wider range of choice when it comes to reading for pleasure.
“We are extremely grateful for the kind gift and we look forward to choosing some exciting, engaging and gripping texts for the children to immerse themselves in. Thank you Compendium Living!
Wendy Lister, Project Co-ordinator at Compendium Living said: “We are delighted to have been able to help Spring Cottage Primary enhance and increase the collection of books they have in the school.
“World Book Day is a great national celebration, and it’s brilliant to see so many of the children getting into the spirit of the day by dressing up as favourite characters. We hope they will make the most of the new books the school can now purchase.”
The Leeway 2 is part of one of the biggest and most exciting housing regeneration programmes undertaken by Hull City Council, in partnership with registered provider Together Housing and Compendium Living, giving the Ings neighbourhood a new lease of life as it becomes a more sustainable and better place to live.
Due for completion at the end of 2019, the pioneering development will provide a total of 68 high quality new homes to meet local housing demand, as part of the wider regeneration project in east Hull that will result in a total of over 700 homes.
