Fundraising event Booktober to be held this October

Fundraising event Booktober to be held this October

Not-for-profit charity WestWords is partnering with Booktopia to hold the annual charity event Booktober from October 1 – 31.

This event involves reading! Participants are encouraged to read as little or as many books as they can during the month of October to raise funds for Westwords in providing books and literacy programs to disadvantaged schools within the greater Western Sydney region. 

Westwords seeks to celebrate and promote a diverse range of stories from various people, places and cultures across Western Sydney. With the support of the Booktober event, young people and children are given the opportunity to develop their own literacy skills through telling their own stories.

WestWords Ambassador, Bryan Brown, invites people to “get involved in this special initiative that will help raise funds for kids who don’t have the opportunity to access these programs or have their very own books.”

Donations close from 5pm AEST on 20 November. Please visit their website for participation information here.
