My story

This year Shackleton House have chosen to support Buckinghamshire-based mental health charity [url=https://lindengate.org.uk/]Lindengate[/url], an organisation that offers specialised gardening activities to help those with mental health needs in their continuing recovery. [p]With all that has been going on in the past year with the pandemic, lockdowns have seen mental health issues rise. Shackleton House have, therefore, chosen to support this charity and one activity that helps with mental health is to read. With this in mind, we are doing a Readathon for the whole of June. Amongst a whole host of other things, Davenies boys are excellent at reading and what better way to relax and take your mind off stressful and manic times, whilst also supporting a worthwhile cause, than with a story or two. [/p][p] [/p][p]How can the boys get involved? Pre-Prep will raise sponsorship by reading a certain amount of books of their choice, and will let their teacher know at the end of June the total number read. Boys in Year 3–8 will be sponsored by the total number of words they read and can register their books, once completed, by using the Accelerated Reader programme. Mrs Gamble (a Shackletonian) has set up a Shackleton group on Accelerated Reader so that I can keep informed of the boys’ progress and give weekly updates in the e-bee to you all. Sadly, Mrs Gamble is leaving us at the end of this term so it would be great to show her how well we have all progressed with our reading and raise lots of money for such a good cause.[/p]
