Redrow has donated £300 to a Community Book Fund to help poorly children
Poorly children being treated in hospital will get a new selection of books thanks to a Redrow donation.
Our Eastern division has donated £300 towards a Community Book Pledge that will provide the Acute Children’s Services at Broomfield Hospital with a selection of new books for the patients. Usborne Books works to promote literacy by working collaboratively with schools and businesses to get more books into the hands of children.
Our donation will provide an estimated 50 books for children of all ages while they are undergoing treatment at Broomfield Hospital, helping to educate, entertain and encourage literacy.
Joanne Randall, an Independent Usborne Organiser, said: “I was so thrilled when Redrow confirmed their donation of £300 to the Community Book Pledge, that my son and I literally did a happy dance in our lounge! I would like to say a huge thank you to Redrow for their extremely generous donation, which is very gratefully received. I hope that no matter how long the children are under the care of the staff at Broomfield Hospital that they will have access to books and activities that they can engage, have fun with and learn from.”
Kerry McCoubrey, Sales Director for our Eastern division, added: “We are delighted to be donating towards Usborne’s Community Book Pledge and providing books to the patients in the Acute Children’s Services. Books help to transport children away from their reality and spark their imagination so I can’t think of a better place for these books to be going.”
