Countrystyle, along with representatives of other supporting organisations joined pupils from schools across Kent, Medway and Bexley to attend the KM Charity’s celebration event marking the success of the Home Reading and Green Travel Challenge winners.

 

Taking place at Leeds Castle, the top performing schools for the reading reward scheme- Buster’s Book Club and green travel initiative – Active Wow (Walk on Wednesday) received free tickets for Diggerland and Leeds Castle.

Buster’s Book Club is designed to make reading cool, and sets children home-reading targets. Green travel scheme Active Wow encourages families to leave the car at home for the school run and instead make the journey by walking or cycling; as of September, it will be rebranded as Super Wow.

Attending the event and presenting the prizes to the students was Countrystyle’s marketing executive, Emily who commented: “It was a great day at Leeds Castle as one of the supporters. The pupils were thrilled with their awards and it was great to see so many enthusiastic faces about reading and green travel. We are proud to support such a great scheme to promote essential life skills and road safety.”

KM Charity, chief executive Simon Dolby congratulated all the schools and children involved and commented: “These children thoroughly deserve their day in the spotlight today. I congratulate them for the committed and enthusiastic way they have embraced Buster’s Book Club and Active Wow. The two schemes are brilliant ways of helping to improve children’s literacy and health and the local environment, and I would urge other schools to sign up for them now so they are in place for the start of the school year in September.”
