Hart Primary School were delighted with the donation which allows them to replenish their ‘story sacks’ that children take home every week to encourage reading for pleasure.

Each one includes a fiction and non-fiction book, nursery rhyme, and an activity to enjoy with their parents.

Pamela Hargreaves, Chief Executive of Water Babies which introduces babies and young children to swimming, said: "We share Hart Primary School’s passion for supporting children to develop a lifelong love of reading because of the positive impact it can have on their future growth and potential.
