Students who are home schooling have taken books from school to make online learning easier
Bowlee Primary School in Middleton has received a gift of around 200 books from book publisher Miles Kelly, via Business in the Community (BITC).
The business-led membership organisation’s National Business Response Network connected Miles Kelly with the school, which needed more non-fiction books.
As the third national lockdown hit England this month, some books were taken home by students to make online learning easier, whilst others stayed in the libraries for the children of key workers.
Councillors Neil Emmott and Sue Smith, Members of Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council, helped deliver the books to Bowlee Primary School last month.
Councillor Emmott commented: “It’s great that BITC are working here on the ground in West Middleton.
“It was a real pleasure to see these books go to the children of Bowlee Primary School.”
BITC’s National Business Response Network connects national and local community groups, small businesses, local authorities and charities with businesses and brands who can offer support.
Business in the Community is the oldest and largest business-led membership organisation, created nearly 40 years ago by HRH The Prince of Wales to champion responsible business.
