Ashton Gate Stadium Goes Green for Dyslexia

To mark Dyslexia Week, Ashton Gate Stadium joined many local landmarks in showing support for the Go Green for Dyslexia Campaign.

Nessy Leaning and the Bristol Dyslexia Centre have led the way in providing guidance for dyslexic students for the past 40 years. Their expertise has enabled children to flourish and find their way in the world. The Nessy software is now helping children all over the globe. 

To mark Dyslexia Awareness Week, Nessy is launching a fundraising campaign to support the British Dyslexia Association - GO GREEN FOR DYSLEXIA. 

All funds will go towards raising awareness and helping young people throughout the UK to go and get tested, go and get information and go and get help.

On Thursday, Ashton Gate Stadium was lit green in support of the Go Green for Dyslexia Campaign.

Nessy Learning is working in partnership with Bristol City Council – gifting Nessy Reading & Spelling licences to every library in Bristol and the surrounding areas. Nessy is also gifting Bristol City and Bristol Bears with Reading & Spelling licences to support their community departments.

For the entire Dyslexia Awareness Week Nessy is offering the screening program (Dyslexia Quest) and the teacher training program (Dyslexia Training) free of charge to schools and parents throughout world, in partnership with the British Dyslexia Association. 

Commenting on Going Green, Mark Kelly Managing Director of Ashton Gate commented; "Ashton Gate Stadium is proud to support The Go Green for Dyslexia Campaign for the second year running.

"The global campaign is much more than raising awareness for dyslexia it’s helping to take action whilst raising money for the Dyslexia Trust.”
