Book Trade Supports Readathon

The book trade loves Readathon! Many publishers, distributors and reading advocacy groups support us by: 

  • sponsoring the production of our resource pack materials
  • providing free or subsidised materials for us to give to schools
  • promoting our work through their own marketing channels

If your organisation would like to get involved, please get in touch!

National Book Tokens logoNational Book Tokens - NEW!

From September 2013, National Book Tokens will generously donate 2 x £5 book tokens to the first 1500 schools to return a donation of more than £50. The book tokens are to reward two children who have made an exceptional effort to make their school's Readathon a success. The school's Readathon organiser chooses the winners and the criteria, e.g. those who read more than usual, those who helped run the Readathon, those with the most changed attitude to reading. More details of this exciting new scheme are hereSchools may also continue to reward EVERY pupil with a free personalised Readathon certificate - download one to photocopy here.
