EUROSPAR and VIVOXTRA sponsor ReadOn initiative

EUROSPAR and VIVOXTRA are once again supporting Cancer Fund for Children’s ReadOn

campaign, encouraging pupils from across Northern Ireland to pick up a book for a good

cause.

The charity initiative encourages both primary and secondary pupils to read for pleasure,

whilst also raising money to support local children living with cancer in Northern Ireland, and

their families. Pupils are sponsored to read a book of their choice, at home or in school.

This is the third year the convenience stores, which are part of the Henderson Group, have

sponsored Cancer Fund for Children’s ReadOn campaign.

“We are absolutely delighted to be part of this fantastic schools campaign again,” said

Bronagh Luke, head of Corporate Marketing at the Henderson Group. “I would urge as many

schools as possible to sign up and support this great cause.”

Cancer Fund for Children helps families by providing practical, emotional and financial

support from the point of diagnosis and throughout their cancer journey. Funds raised from

ReadOn will go directly towards providing support to local children and their families affected

by cancer.

Schools signing up receive a free ReadOn pack with posters and teachers’ resources. Every

pupil will receive a bookmark and pencil as a thank you, and the school may also be in with a

chance of receiving a visit from Ollie, the ReadOn owl.

For a free ReadOn pack and information about how to get involved, email

rebecca@cancerfundforchildren.com or phone 028 9080 5599.
