Wolves Community Trust Celebrate World Book Day

Wolves Community Trust, along with the rest of the UK and Ireland, celebrated the 21st World Book Day last week.

A day dedicated to celebrating authors, illustrators and books, over 100 countries mark the event by encouraging youngsters to appreciate reading.

Wolves Community Trust are no different and this year encouraged youngsters to get involved by launching a World Book Day competition, where children aged 4-11 created a storyboard or short story about Wolves Superheroes – The Wanderers.

The King of Speed, Costa and the fearless leader, Nuno were amongst the characters on a mission, with numerous prizes on offer to the youngsters, including a Soccer School or Executive Box at Molineux.

The Trust received more than 600 entries, proving to be one of their most successful competitions to date.

Schools Manager, Tom Warren, said: “We’re genuinely overwhelmed at the response, we’d like to thank everyone who sent in an entry.

“It’s so important that children enjoy reading and writing so we thought the subject of Wolves and superheroes helped fans engage, which may be an explain why we have received so many entries.

“We’re looking forward to having a read through and picking our winners, and then having the presentation at half-time of the Burton Albion match.”


The competition winners have now been confirmed as the following:

1st – Violet Berry-Deakin

2nd – James McKenzie-Keillor

3rd – Joey Blackwell
