Hundreds of schools have signed up for a scheme in which they can receive free books for pupils - and now is the time for parents to get behind them.

Our Books for Schools initiative returned on Saturday, October 16, in partnership with Enjoy Books More.

It sees families and communities collect tokens printed in the Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News every day, save them up and give them to their schools so they can earn a share of £20,000 worth of books.

All schools which participate will win £100 worth of books*, while the school that collects the most will win £1,000 worth. Two runners-up will be given £500 worth.

If your school is not registered there's still time for it to sign up - register at https://bit.ly/books-for-schools-norfolk

*Terms and conditions apply. On collection of 1,000 tokens every school will receive £100 to spend on books of their choice from a supplied list. The main prizes will be awarded according to pupil numbers versus tokens collected, ie 50 pupils collecting 6,000 tokens is the same as 100 pupils collecting 12,000 tokens
