Hell Pizza Reading Challenge
Tell us about the library books you read and earn a free pizza!
Hell Pizza wants to reward children who read books so they came up with a delicious idea - read for pizza!
This is how it works:
- It's open to children in Years 1 to 8
- Ask for a pizza wheel at your local library.
- Borrow and read books from Kāpiti Coast District Libraries
- Tell us about each book you read to receive a clip of your wheel.
- Seven clips fills up your wheel and it will be stamped and signed by a librarian.
- Take your completed wheel to any Hell's Pizza store and receive a free 333 Hell Pizza.
- You can keep filling up wheels until we run out of them. Last day to redeem pizzas is 3 December 2019.
