"Photographs were taken showing the locations of the books, to help younger children find them.”
“Persimmon’s donation will enable me to replicate the treasure hunt on a larger scale so that I can help put more books in the hands of young readers.”
Gemma Bateman, head of sales for Persimmon South Yorkshire, said: “Our Community Champions scheme is all about supporting our local area. Rachael’s book treasure hunt is a wonderful initiative to help promote reading in children as well as creating opportunities to explore the local area.”
