Read for Refugees: Sunflower Challenge

We are inviting pupils to participate in the Read for Refugees Sunflower Challenge, organised by librarians across the UK with support from the School Library Association.

After ten million Ukrainians have had to leave their homes, we are asking students to raise money for the United Nations Refugee Agency by getting sponsored to read as much they can.

The overall aim is to keep children reading during the Summer break when they’re not in school and to do something positive in the face of tragedy.

Students could ask for donations from friends and family per page, chapter, or book read; by hours spent reading; or simply for a flat donation to support their involvement. All sponsors can donate directly on the project’s JustGiving page . Sponsorship forms are available from Miss Holman until the 20th July.

For more information please visit the Read for Refugees website.

If you have further questions, please email Miss Holman, School Librarian at before the 20th July.

Thank you for your support.

If you do get involved we’d love to see your pictures and hear your encouragement for all our readers for refugees! Please tag the school in to any social media posts and spread the word with the hashtag #ReadForRefugees
