Scottish Book Trust is a national charity that believes books, reading and writing have the power to change lives. Barcapel awarded a grant of £20,000 to deliver ‘Reading Buddies’, a shared reading project that involves older pupils and parents sharing a love of reading with younger reading buddies in their school.
