Free school supply packs and kindles to schools in Newham and Hackney from MoneyGram!

Leading money transfer company MoneyGram have been heading a campaign entitled ‘Readers are Leaders’ to increase the interest of primary school pupils across Newham and Hackney to read whilst at home. In order to advocate their philosophy, MoneyGram, who are keen on giving back to the community, have given over 4,000 stationery packs as well as a brand new kindle e-reader, to each of the participating schools. The schools that benefited from the campaign include Homleigh Primary School, Nightingale Primary School, Winsor Primary School, Star Primary School, Vicarage Primary School, Curwen Primary School, Ellen Wilkinson Primary School and Drew Primary School.

MoneyGram have also kindly conducted assemblies within some of the participating schools to further encourage pupils to read and engage in educational activities, backed by local Councilors Joy Laguda and Ayesha Chowdhury from the borough of Newham and Councilor Susan Fajana-Thomas and Rita Krishna of the borough of Hackney who have attended and spoke at the assemblies.

Representing Newham in the ‘Readers are Leaders’ assembly was Winsor Primary School in Beckton, which saw star year 6 pupil, Faith Falayi, handed the kindle by MoneyGram marketing executive, Olu Oke, for her exceptional educational achievement. Nightingale Primary School, representing the Hackney borough, accepted the kindle at their assembly on behalf of the entire school and will be used in particular to encourage pupils with dyslexia.

MoneyGram strongly believes that “Readers are Leaders” and are appreciative to be able to spread this motivating message by giving back to the community and allowing this philosophy to grow.

“We are delighted to be giving out these Kindle e-readers and school supplies to young pupils as we strongly believe this would help and contribute to their educational development. MoneyGram is not just in the business of sending money, but we are also interested in giving back to the community and supporting education in particular” said Oluwaseyi Oke, Marketing Exec for MoneyGram.
