Pupils at Aitkenhead Primary School in Birkenshaw marked World Book Day in March 2001 by holding a charity book and comic sale.

The pupils’ efforts raised £85 initially, with more to come, for Book Aid International. a charity supplying books to schools in some of the world’s poor countries.

In addition to the sale a series of ‘Happy Hour Activities’ also took place to promote reading for enjoyment.
