BROOMHILL Primary in Glasgow is set to receive copies of a children's book as part of a 'UK tour'.

In an effort to popularise reading, over 23,000 copies of Serena Patel’s, Anisha, Accidental Detective will be distributed across UK schools.

The programme is part of a Rent-A-Car and National Literacy Trust collaboration, and Broomhill Primary School is the second institution to receive copies of the popular book.

Arriving in a special van, decorated by the book's illustrator, Emma McCann, the delivery will reach Glasgow tomorrow.

Darranda Rowswell, Director of Development at the National Literacy Trust, said, “Around one in 11 children from lower income families don’t have a book of their own at home.

"Reading is not just great fun, but it’s a vital skill and we want all children to love reading. Children and young people who enjoy reading and who read frequently are better readers, helping them to realise their fullest potential at school and in life.

“This book donation is one more important step in our literacy recovery programme to address the educational issues caused by the pandemic and will help the children who need it most.

"We’re so happy that Enterprise was able to support us in this programme which will see thousands of children benefitting from this exciting book.”
