In early October some of the team here at Slung Low spent a week at Holbeck’s Ingram Road Primary School reading our new children’s book ‘Emergency Story Penguin’ to the kids. At the end of the week we gave each one of them a copy.
That’s 340 kids.
Why did we do it? Because it came to our attention that some children in Holbeck who, when they start school, don’t own a book.
And here we are, trying to create the most exciting arts centre in the country and what matters that if there are kids in our community who don’t even own one book.
Imagine not having a book.
So we turned one of our most beloved shows in a beautiful picture book and our mission is to give every kid in Holbeck a copy of Emergency Story Penguin before Christmas - and we’d like your help.
We ask you to buy two copies for £12 - we will post one copy to you, the other we donate here in South Leeds.#
Any money made will go back into printing more copies because if we can, we want to keep giving the books to kids in Leeds for as long as we can.
