Our Community Champions help celebrate 2017 World Book Day

Our wonderful team of Community Champions have been dressing up as their favourite characters and visiting local schools and nurseries to celebrate World Book Day.

Celebrating World Book Day

In Sutton, Community Champion Tracey Jacques visited Abbey Primary School dressed as Harry Potter. The children also dressed for the occasion, with characters ranging from princesses to wizards and superheroes to Mary Poppins.
