Books find a welcoming home
LITTLE bookworms at Springfield Anglican College will be kept busy reading all about animals, the human body, space and more after a generous donation from two Ipswich organisations.
The school was one of many in the area to receive the new books donated through a partnership between Orion Springfield Central and Westside Community Care.
About 600 books were distributed to schools throughout the Springfield region.
Orion Springfield Central marketing manager Danielle Dunsmore said the centre was glad to help provide enjoyable reading material to the youngsters.
"We had some educational books left over from a promotion; they were in perfect condition so it seemed a waste to throw them away," she said.
"We thought Westside Community Care was the perfect group to donate these books to. "We're thrilled to see Westside Community Care found such a good home for them in some of the local schools in the area."
Westside Community Care's Pastor Phil Cutcliffe said the schools were the best choice to give the books to. "Orion approached us and asked us to find a good home for these books," he said.
"We couldn't think of a more deserving place than the local schools."
