HILDREN from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School celebrated World Book Day last Friday with some free books from Evesham’s Morrisons.

The books were presented to the school by Theresa Tydeman, community champion at Morrisons in Davies Road.

The project came about thanks to a partnership between the Morrisons Foundation and The National Literacy Trust aimed at helping children from local communities to fall in love with books and reading.

Theresa said: “They made me feel very welcome and I was so pleased to stay and watch the amazing costume parade for World Book Day.

“There’s a great selection of books and I hope every pupil will find something that they will enjoy.”

The Morrisons Foundation has given out 7,300 new books nationwide to hundreds of schools.

Jonathan Douglas, Director of The National Literacy Trust, said “We are thrilled to be working with Morrison’s to bring the gift of reading by these donations!”

The Morrison’s Foundation awards grants for charity projects which make a positive difference in local communities.
