The National Lottery Community Fund has partnered with the Irish FA Foundation to promote reading in primary schools across Northern Ireland.
The Grassroots and Books project will offer selected primary and special needs schools the opportunity to encourage school children to read books using football as a topic to engage and stimulate further practice.
We will be launching this exciting new project soon when a special guest will be reading a series of excerpts highlighting three great books hoping to ignite a love of reading and football!
The first episode is below!
If your school wishes to get involved in this great project or if you feel your child would love reading football themed stories then contact firstname.lastname@example.org
