Wardell Armstrong is a Proud Sponsor of the Stoke-on-Trent BookBench Trail
We are proud to be a sponsor of the Stoke-on-Trent BookBench Trail in association with the National Literacy Trust, Stoke Reads, Wild in Art and Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
The BookBenches are set to inspire the city as part of Stoke Reads, a campaign to promote reading and boost literacy levels. Supported by the City Learning Trust, Stoke Reads inspires the city to enjoy reading and helps parents and practitioners to support children’s literacy skills. We believe that literacy and creativity skills are a key part of a child’s development.
Wardell Armstrong are sponsoring a bench designed and produced by Haywood Academy, that will be on display at Middleport Pottery throughout the duration of the project.
The BookBenches will be on display and free to visit at locations in and around the city of Stoke-on-Trent from 12th April until 30th June 2019. Residents and visitors can follow a trail to discover the BookBenches and literacy-focused events will be held around them. The benches will then be returned to the school to be used and inspire pupils for years to come.
