Author Emma Bowd – Ambassador for Ardoch’s School Readiness Book Drive 2016 (Bayside Leader, 18 Oct 2016)

I’m thrilled and honoured to be the Ambassador for education charity Ardoch Youth Foundation’s School Readiness Book Drive, which is in full swing this month of October! To read more about my passion for supporting early childhood literacy campaigns like this, please click here.

Ardoch has pledged to support 1,000 children from local disadvantaged communities who are starting school in 2017 by providing them with School Readiness Packs. Each pack contains 5 books and 5 activities to enhance their fine motor skills.

This means we need to source 5,000 children’s books for the packs before the end of the year!

My sincere thanks to the two amazing schools of Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak and St Joan of Arc Brighton,Β for coordinating book collections, as well as all four MelbourneΒ Bayside Libraries (Brighton, Beaumaris, Hampton and Sandringham).

Book Donations can also be made directly to Ardoch via online purchases from Robinsons Bookshop – who will not only deliver the books but ALSO give a 25% discount to all Book Drive books.
