‘Campaign to provide books for Ukrainian Refugee children’

A children’s literacy charity has launched a campaign to raise £1 million to buy books for Ukrainian refugees arriving in the UK.

Bookmark Reading, a literacy charity that provides volunteer-led reading support for children, aims to supply 5,000 welcome Book Boxes to Ukrainian children, aged five to nine, who have fled their homes due to the war with Russia.

The boxes will include books in Ukrainian and English, a tablet pre-loaded with multilingual eBooks, literacy and language apps and activities together with a SIM card to stay in touch with family and friends, school stationery sets and sensory games and storytelling aides for therapeutic play, the charity said.
