We had a wonderful response to our book appeal and are delighted to have now donated these to charity.


Everyone involved with the school will know how important reading is to us at Gorsey Bank and it’s fantastic to see the children immersing themselves in different stories and adventures on a daily basis.


We wanted to share the enjoyment our pupils get from reading with others and have been collecting books for the school’s partner charity Ronald McDonald House in Manchester.


Thanks to the generosity of the children and their parents and carers, we were able to gift more than 100 brand new and pre-loved books to the charity to share with children, and their siblings, who are under the care of Manchester Children’s Hospital.


The books were presented to a representative from Ronald McDonald House, Alice Beck, who came into school and spoke to the children about the charity’s work and the families they support.


We’d like to say thank you to everyone who took part for their kind donations and for helping us to share the joy of reading with others.
