On Tuesday 20th May 2014 Southend Adult Community College will hold an awards ceremony for readers, tutors and volunteers who successfully completed this year's Six Book Challenge, which was launched earlier in the year at the Forum: Southend-on-Sea.

Invited guests for the Six Book Challenge Certificate awards presentation will include The Worshipful the Mayor,Councilor Walker and Digby Fairweather, Southend’s very own Six Book Challenge Champion and Stephen Lay, Principal of SACC.

The Six Book Challenge was launched nationally in 2008, and invites less confident readers to read any six titles of their own choice and then express their views in a free reading diary. Participants receive a certificate on successfully completing the Challenge.

Run by the national charity The Reading Agency, the idea is to help people get back into reading - in many cases for the first time - and it works!
