We're delighted to be nominated for a Business to Arts award in the Best Small Sponsorship category for the Bookbag project!
Aimed at DEIS schools, where free books can be most needed, the Bookbag project gifts every child in chosen schools with a book to take home and keep.
The second annual Bookbag scheme was launched at Our Lady of Victories Infants School in Ballymun in April of this year with every student in the school receiving a Bookbag containing a book, posters, bookmarks and a letter from Niamh Sharkey. The overall aim of Bookbag is to encourage a reading culture among the children in the school and among their families, and to ensure that every child in the school has access to at least one book in their home.
We're incredibly proud of the continued success and growth of Bookbag and thrilled to be nominated again!
Wish us luck!
