Wally

We rely on the generous support of individuals, communities and businesses to continue our vital work to transform lives through literacy.

Whether you fancy hosting a book sale, taking part in our annual Where’s Wally? fun run, or perhaps even challenging yourself and your colleagues to an adventure in the Arctic – there’s something for everyone and we’ll be with you every step of the way!
