Started on 1st December 2020 Sheffield, England, United Kingdom

We’re on a mission to give the #giftofreading to children this Christmas. We’ve teamed up with the charity Bookmark, who support schools by providing volunteer-led 6 week 1 to 1 reading programmes for struggling children.

Why are we doing this? The UK has one of the lowest literacy rates in the developed world (OECD). The National Literacy Trust tells us that currently in the UK, an average of eight children in a class leave primary school unable to read well.

The consequences are far-reaching and don’t just impact on the future education of these children. Studies show that this leads to a greater chance of unemployment, lower-quality work, plus lower incomes and financial difficulties. Many have low self-esteem, run a greater risk of social isolation and can struggle with mental health issues, such as depression.

Together, we can help change this and create better life opportunities for these children. Your donation can have a massive impact on children and we'd like to help Bookmark support even more children this Christmas.

Incredible message! Glad to be a part of it! “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis
