Pupils at Peartree Primary School in Welwyn Garden City have received a bundle of new books for their school library thanks to the Morrisons Foundation in partnership with the National Literacy Trust.

The Morrisons Foundation donation comes after a recent study conducted by the National Literacy Trust showed that reading has provided a vital refuge for children during the ongoing lockdowns.

The Community Champion from the Morrisons store in Welwyn Garden City delivered the books to the school.

Amanda said: “I’m so proud to be helping children in my community through this donation of books. We are living through challenging times and I hope these stories will give the pupils at Peartree Primary School some fun and enjoyment.”

The book bundle included The Extraordinary Life of Amelia Earhart by Sheila Kanani and The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance by Clare Balding.
