Pupils from Banavie Primary School celebrated World Book Day on Thursday March 7, with a bundle of new books for their school library, donated by local supermarket Morrisons.

The books were gifted to Banavie Primary thanks to a partnership between the Morrisons Foundation and the National Literacy Trust. It aims to help children from local communities to fall in love with books and reading around World Book Day.

The books were presented to pupils by Margaret Laidlaw,  people manager and Donna Hughes, community champion at the local Morrisons in Fort William. Margaret said: ‘I’m delighted to be donating these new books to a local school. There’s a great selection and I hope that every pupil will be able to find a story they will enjoy.’

The donation is part of a national project funded by the Morrisons Foundation. It will see every Morrisons store across the country donating a bundle of books to a local primary school – meaning getting more than 7,300 new books into hundreds of schools.
