Read on Nottingham’s community takeover of the Nottingham Panthers ice hockey match gave the team an opportunity to share books with over 1,000 local children.

On Sunday, Read on Nottingham and its Literary Champions attended the Nottingham Panthers Ice Hockey match against Manchester Storm at Motorpoint Arena.

Read on Nottingham’s Charlotte and Lynne shared the joy of reading with over 1,000 children and their families throughout the day. The hardworking team gave out more than 1,000 World Book Day books along with flyers filled with literacy activities and tips for families to take home.

All children were gifted tokens which they can swap for a World Book Day book in bookshops throughout the city. Families can also borrow the World Book Day books from their local Nottingham City Library.

Our friends at The Renewal Trust provided 190 match tickets for the Literacy Champions and their families. It was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate and reward the volunteers for all the brilliant work over the past year.

The Hub attended the match to celebrate their local partner The Renewal Trust which had been awarded the Panther’s Charity of the Month.

This innovative takeover is part of Nottingham's year-long programme, Year of Stories. The programme aims to encourage everyone across the city to enjoy creating, sharing and exploring stories and bring diverse communities together.
