Leeds City Council Staff Donate Over 1000 Books!

Leeds City Council staff and Law firms across the city have donated over 1000 books to children in Leeds. 


As part of the Year of Reading, staff were asked to donate good quality children's books that weren't being used. The books have now been donated to schools, refugee families, food banks and other organisations across Leeds.

Great Preston Primary said 'Thank you ever so much for our fantastic books! We refurbished our school library over the summer and these books have really helped in our replenishment
following the sorting that has taken place over the past few months.'

Thank you to all staff that have donated in this initiative and we will be continuing this over the next year, please contact Mary.Gillespie@leeds.gov.uk if you would like to participate.
