Scholastic UK has announced that it has become a supporting partner for Red Nose Day 2009.
There will be a six week campaign culminating on Friday 13th March to encourage the people of the UK to 'Do Something Funny for Money'. Scholastic is working with thousands of schools across the UK to support Red Nose Day and to 'Read Something Funny for Money'. The aim is to raise over £50,000 for Comic Relief.
Kate Wilson, Group MD at Scholastic UK says, "We are proud to be a supporting partner for Red Nose Day 2009. We work with teachers and children every day to promote the enjoyment of books and reading and to provide free books for school libraries. Red Nose Day gives us the opportunity to highlight what Scholastic does, while also supporting the great charitable work that schools do to raise money for Comic Relief and adding to the range of fund-raising activities available."
