National Literacy Trust are hosting their annual Where’s Wally? Fun Run in Victoria Park, London on 22nd March. Walk, jog or run 5 or 10km and help to support disadvantaged children to read and write.

1 in 4 children will leave primary school reading below the expected level for their age.  Children like James who was considered a “stuck” pupil until he took part in the 10 week Premier League Reading Stars programme.  The programme uses football to encourage and engage children in reading and writing. On completing the programme James is now a confident and enthusiastic reader who is on track to leave school with an above average reading level and greatly improved prospects for the future. You can learn more about James’ story here.

This is just one of many programmes run by National Literacy Trust which impacts the lives of thousands around the UK.

Have we convinced you yet? Sign up to the Where’s Wally? fun run, get fit, have fun, make new friends, and best of all support National Literacy Trust in their work to raise literacy levels across the UK.

Register here to take part in the Where’s Wally? Fun Run in Victoria Park, London on Sunday 22 March.

Side note for confused Americans: “Where’s Wally?” is indeed the UK version of “Where’s Waldo?”
