Summer Reading Challenge 1: Marcus Rashford Bookclub & Macmillan Children’s Books
Category : Events
We are excited and honoured to be collaborating with the incredible footballer, campaigner, and all-round inspiration Marcus Rashford through his Bookclub and Macmillan Children’s Books. From July 2021, we’ll be working together to get 400 brand new books to those who can’t afford or access them across the UK and Ireland.
Marcus has relentlessly campaigned and lobbied for those in need and most affected by austerity and socio-economic disparities – from free school meals to increasing access to literature. The values that underpin both the Book Club and the Free Books Campaign are closely aligned and we are so proud to be supporting his mission – to get books to young people across the UK.
Since the publication of his debut children’s book You Are a Champion, Rashford and Macmillan have donated 50,000 copies to schools across the UK – we are proud to be joining them in their campaign to get even more books out to vital youth services such as youth clubs, community centres and charities throughout Britain and Ireland.
All books are generously donated by Macmillan Children’s.
