Students from One were thrilled to take part in World Book Night. The annual 500,000 national book give away is designed to share a love of books with people who may not necessarily enjoy reading.
Katie, Jonathan, Charlotte and Catriona who are currently studying at One spent a lunchtime distributing “The Girl with the Pearl Earring” and “The Eyre Affair” books to students and staff.
Katie said “it’s an awesome idea and a great way for opening people’s eyes to other different and fantastic books”. Catriona added “it had been a real joy and hopefully will inspire people to read”.
Those receiving the books were equally pleased and amazed to find there were really no strings attached to receiving the book. Rob a year 13 student enthused: "It is not often that you are given something for free that you can use and keep forever so this campaign is really unique and should be used to its full advantage!"
