Hurrah – we have our first fundraising news for Community Week 2012 🙂
Mark Silver, Library Promotions & Design Manager at Bertram Library Services is undertaking to walk The Kirklees Way, a 72 mile walk around the town’s perimeter.
The walk takes place over 5 days from Saturday 23rd to Wednesday 27th June and Mark is raising funds for the The National Literacy Trust.
Mark says on his Publicity Form:
Lack of access to good literacy support at a young age can become a life-long barrier to many important opportunities. This feels like such a great chance to help support the vital work that the National Literacy Trust are engaged in with people of all ages within educational institutions, libraries and the community as a whole.
It’s also a very neat tie-in with Mark’s role at Bertrams and he hopes he’ll have support from his colleagues along the way.
