SWINDON Soroptimists handed 132 books to Drove Primary School to celebrate World Book Day and encourage pupils to read more.

Assistant principal Bryony Bardwell said: “We are so grateful for the book donations we receive each year from the Swindon Soroptimists. They are shared between the classes at school, allowing the children to take books home to read or use within their classroom within their morning reading session.

“The children look forward to the Swindon Soroptimists coming into school each year as they are excited to see which new books they will have to read.

“Our children are developing a love of reading and it is acts of kindness like this that really help us boost this for our children.”
