Catch Up Literacy in schools
Why we need your help
Children's literacy is one of the most important areas of a child's education. For a child to be able to read, write, understand and speak well will place this child in good stead for their future. Our work at The Children's Literacy Charity supporting 174 disadvantaged children in schools has termporarily stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We fear these children will fall further behind and their literacy gap will widen. We need to get back to our schools as soon as they reopen to deliver our one-to-one intervention and we need your support to do this. This is a critical time for us as a charity and will be needed in schools more than ever after this crisis to help get children back on track.
We are taking on the 2.6 Challenge on Sunday 26th April and are looking for supporters and fundraisers to help us reach our target of £26,000. The 2.6 Challenge is in place of the London Marathon that would have taken place on this date. Here at The Children's Literacy Charity we are fans of exercise and, of course, reading. Let us combine both! We need you as individuals or as a family to take on the 2.6 Exercise and Reading Challenge. Get fit, get reading AND raise money in the meantime for us!
There are two challenges you can partake in (or even do both!):
1) Hold the plank position for 2.6 minutes - while reading any book of your choice
2) Carry out 26 squats - while reading any book of your choice
If you are a family or a group of friends, you can split the challenges to do. It may be an idea to set a timer or ask a friend to count the squats as you read - doing both won't be so easy! Remember to follow the Government's guidelines and carry out these challenges at home or in the garden.
If you are looking for a bigger fitness challenge, you can do this every day for 26 days - we would love to see photos and you can tag us on social media @childsliteracy and #TwoPointSixChallenge.
Once these challenges are completed, simply donate £26, £260 or £2,600 to our Virgin Money Giving page here.
Thank you and good luck!
