One of the first runs of the year, the National Literacy Trust’s annual Where’s Wally? run takes place in Victoria Park, London on Sunday 16 March 2014. Last year saw 1,200 people walking, jogging and running 5 or 10 km. This year they want it to be even bigger!
The National Literacy Trust aims to engage disadvantaged children in reading, writing and to develop communication skills and confidence. They achieve this through inspirational reading events including the Young Readers Programme and Premier League Reading Stars. Since its foundation in 1993, literacy levels have increased by 24%, with 80% of 11-year-olds reaching the stage expected for their age group in 2009, compared with only 56% in 1995. Yet, as demands on literacy skills are rapidly increasing, there is still much to do to reach those people who are in most need of literacy support.
Kensington Mums is taking part in the 5k Where’s Wally? fun run and inviting you all to join us for a fun family day out supporting a great cause.
