Pupils in South Norfolk have been given a helping hand after more than 250 dictionaries were donated to their schools.
In total, 300 books have now been donated by the Diss Waveney Rotary Club to eight surrounding primary schools.
Students in year five at Diss Junior School were given 39 new Dictoinaries4Life from the club earlier this month.
The youngsters were presented with the new books from club president Janet Turner and member Linda Hewlett Parker.
Dictionaries4Life were donated to previous students last year and staff at Diss Junior School say it provided a boost to literacy levels to those who received them.
