Disadvantaged families in Hull are to benefit from a game involving books and chocolate which helps to raise literacy levels in children.

TreasureK was developed by charity worker Anne Dannerolle, 41, after she became concerned by her son’s reading ability.

The treasure hunt game – which consists of five stories, 10 chocolate coins and stickers – is now on sale for £9.99 after proving a hit with Ms Dannerolle’s son Alex.

Ms Dannerolle hopes that other children at Key Stage 1 level will develop a love of reading through TreasureK, the proceeds of which will help disadvantaged families in Hull.

The LiFEZone project in Newland at Hull Community Church, which helps to support local families, is one of the target groups in the project, Ms Dannerolle said.

Pupils at St Nicholas Primary School in the city have already tried out TreasureK and headteacher Caroline Skipper said that both children and parents had loved the resource.
