Test your knowledge by taking part in my 'Greatest Literary Quiz ever' - and support disadvantaged children, throughout the current crisis and beyond!

How will my fundraising help?

As a charity that exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children through literacy, there’s never been a more important time for our work.

The recent school closures across the UK mean that the weeks, and possibly months, ahead will be challenging for any parent.

But for the families of the 4.6 million children already living in poverty in the UK, the pressures of economic hardship, social isolation and needing to support their children’s education and literacy at home could be overwhelming or impossible.

We are adapting our services to ensure that families in the poorest communities, and schools that remain open to some of the most vulnerable children, can access and benefit from our vital literacy support throughout this current crisis.

Every penny you raise will help support these children throughout this unprecedented situation, and for helping to ensure that the we are able to continue supporting them when this crisis is over.
