World Book Day treat for pupils at Northstowe secondary college
Northstowe Secondary College will enjoy some new books in their growing library thanks to some famous authors who have kindly donated books ahead of World Book Day, 5 March 2020.
Best selling children’s author and entertainer David Walliams has already donated two signed copies of his books for the school’s growing library. Other famous authors who are donating books include Cambridge Alumni, Stephen Fry, with many others sending in books over the next few weeks and online retailer Scholastic also providing a bulging box of free books. The books have been enabled through working with housing developer Urban Splash’s Charitable Trust.
Tony Colville, Head of Urban Splash's Charitable Trust says: “We are pleased to have been able to help the school with some exciting new additions to their growing library by calling on our friends to help and look forward to continuing to be a friendly neighbour at Northstowe.”
House by Urban Splash is building 406 innovative, factory-built homes at Inholm, Northstowe, next to the town centre and Northstowe Secondary College.
Inholm at Northstowe is one of the company’s newest communities and it is working closely with the school, residents groups and charities across the community to take a different approach in using their networks, expertise and funds to ensure they are an active good neighbour and partner.
