Six Book Challenge with the Reading Agency

Six Book Challenge with the Reading Agency in HMP Grendon & AYOI. BACO supports this initiative by providing prizes for those completing the challenge of reading six books and keeping a diary of what they have read.

On December 11th 2019 BACO trustees and members enjoyed listening to conversations between Louise Candlish and residents before presenting prizes to all those who had completed the Six Book Challenge.  We are very grateful to the Head Librarian Debra Lovell and Coles Books of Bicester for providing the prizes.
