Warwick Rotary hand out dictionaries to youngsters

Ian Hughes 19th Jul, 2018

YOUNGSTERS in Warwick have been introduced to lots of new words.

The Rotary Club of Warwick handed out more than 350 dictionaries to year four pupils at schools across the town.

Club president David Smith said: “Rotary has been giving out children’s dictionaries for a number of years, so eventually every child will get one.

“They are so thrilled to have a book of their own and we always get letters of thanks from the children.”

Over 750,000 school children in the UK and overseas have received a Rotarian donated dictionary through the Dictionary4life project over 11 years to help their literacy and stimulate interest in “old fashioned” books.
