The non-profit hunt, organized by Rachael’s Little Bookworms, received £1,000 from the Persimmon Homes Community Champions scheme to fund the reading venture.
Organizer Rachael Carter said: “I’m buzzing with excitement and so grateful to Persimmon Homes.
“I organized a little scavenger hunt around Doncaster earlier this year to celebrate World Book Day. A total of 175 books were hidden in 24 locations in Doncaster.

“Photographs were taken showing the locations of the books, to help young children find them.”
“Persimmon’s donation will allow me to replicate the scavenger hunt on a larger scale so I can help get more books into the hands of young readers.”
Gemma Bateman, Sales Manager for Persimmon South Yorkshire, said: “Our Community Champions program is all about supporting our region. The Rachael’s Book Scavenger Hunt is a wonderful initiative to help promote reading among children as well as creating opportunities to explore the area.
