It is important to us that all our Readathon readers stay safe. So we advise that you only ask friends and relatives to sponsor you. Do not approach strangers or knock on doors. Your sponsors don’t need to live near, a phone call to your grandparents can be productive!
Remember that the more sponsors you get the more money can go to support children with serious illnesses.
Readathon money is not spent on research, and certainly not on animal experiments. It all goes to help down’s syndrome association. Readathon money helps children, teenagers, mums and dads with home help, transport to visit hospital, household costs, wheelchairs, special holidays, special nurses, special social workers, in fact anything that will help.
And last, but not least, remember that reading should be enjoyable. It can give you so much enjoyment, understanding and power throughout your whole lives.
So go on, pick up a book in a good cause!
