£150 to BookTrust
Claire Powell, London Borough of Hounslow
Claire’s donation will be spent providing books to families and schools who have limited access to reading materials, as well as running exciting reading campaigns through local libraries to encourage children to embrace the joys of reading.
£25 to Cancer Research UK
Jane Everiss, Gloucestershire County Council
Jane’s donation will be used to fund life-saving research into developing a cure for cancer. This can involve something as little as buying new glass slides to analyse cancer cells, or something as big as building a new research centre.
