A TROLLEY full of books has been donated to a children’s reading charity thanks to a Bicester superstore.

Sainsbury’s in Pioneer Square has donated dozens of books to ARCh (Assisted reading for children in Oxfordshire) as part of a national project handing out literature across the country.

ARCh development manager Elaine Adams said: “We are very grateful for the generous donation of books from Sainsbury’s Bicester.

“It is really important to help children develop their language skills and stretch their imaginations.”

The Oxfordshire charity works with schools throughout the county to support and work with children to improve their literacy.

It is also hoped that by providing one-to-one sessions with children it will build confidence in their own ability.

Sainbury’s Bicester store manager Vince Brimble said: “They are a fantastic cause and we know the books will benefit so many local children.”
