On 11th March 2020 LSHPFoundation were delighted to deliver over 300 new books to, Garston C of E Primary School, a primary school in Liverpool, as part of our continued work with “Own Books” (an innovative book recycling project to help children have their own books at home).
Members of the LSHP team attended the school and presented books and a tasty packed lunch to year 4. Our Consultancy Director Sam McCumiskey talked to the children about the fun and enjoyment of reading. The children and Teachers were thrilled with the books. Some of which will stay in the school library and some of which the children can take home and keep.
In conjunction with the LSHPFoundation, this was the first time Own Books donated in the North West. We are proud of introducing this opportunity to Liverpool and hope to continue to work with Open Books in more schools close to our buildings.
LSHPFoundation believe that every child should have books at home that they can enjoy with their family and friends, as books expand our universe beyond time and place and inspire us to think and learn and grow.
Books help children develop basic language skills and profoundly expand their vocabularies—much more than any other media. Books are interactive; they demand that children think.
