Doncaster Stories

Doncaster Stories temporary banner

By encouraging a love of reading, we’re helping the children of Doncaster improve their literacy levels and achieve their full potential.

Over the next 10 years, Doncaster Stories will deliver an array of fun, exciting and educational projects across the town to promote a love for reading.

Doncaster Stories is run in partnership with the Doncaster Opportunity Area. We’ll be working with people and community groups across the town, making sure our work gets to the very heart of Doncaster’s literacy needs.

Keep an eye out for the Doncaster Stories campaign when you’re out and about in the town, featuring your favourite Roald Dahl characters!
