Reading for fun in schools; bringing books and stories to our hospitals

Read for Good does something amazing. We get children reading for fun through our sponsored Readathon. The money raised buys books for schools and brings the power of stories to children in hospital via our mobile bookcases and resident storytellers.

Our charity motivates whole schools and communities to read for fun because we know that loving reading changes lives.

We provide free resources with everything you need to run a brilliantly successful Readathon. Join us on our reading adventures!

“Reading is like flying – it can carry you to different worlds. So hurray for Read for Good, which helps launch so many children on that exciting journey.”

Julia Donaldson
