Our work in the Great North Children’s Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne

We’ve been bringing brand new books and regular storytelling visits to children at the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle since our service was launched there by the highly respected author, David Almond, in 2013.

Our Storyteller, Gerry, always bring smiles to the faces of young patients and their families, telling traditional tales, sometimes accompanied by his trusty guitar!

“Read for Good, thank you for all you do. . . . It’s the small things that make the biggest impact to these children on endless hospital stays.”
