Children from a school in Kings Langley grabbed their books to take part in a readathon to raise thousands of pounds for charities dedicated to caring for seriously ill children.

150 children took part in the national Readathon Challenge at The Rudolf Steiner School to raise £3,099 for CLIC Sargent, Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and ReadWell.

Abi Allanson, the learning support teacher who organised the event, was presented with a Certificate of Achievement and received a voucher for £619.72 to spend on books for the school.
