Where does my £3 go?

Just £3 could buy a child a book to help them catch up with their reading after school closures.

What is the #FitforLit Challenge?

Here at the National Literacy Trust, we use the power of sport to get children excited about reading and writing. The #FitforLit Challenge is your opportunity to help level the playing field for disadvantaged children, and have some fun at the same time.

Here's how:

Take on a sporty challenge with a literacy twist. You could: go for a run while telling a story , do sit-ups while reading a book , walk your dog and listening to an audiobook , do a yoga pose while balancing a book. Take a look at our gallery below, the #FitforLit tag on social, or our YouTube channel for inspiration!

Text FITFORLIT to 70085 to donate £3, make a donation online, or set up your own JustGiving page like Milan !

Share photos or videos on social media using #FitForLit and nominate 3 friends to join in too .
