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

In 2013, our service at the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle was launched by the brilliant David Almond. This set a benchmark for our work, and the books and storytelling visits that we have provided since then have been able to maintain it!

Our storyteller in Newcastle, Gerry, always brings the biggest smiles to the faces of young patients and their families, telling an astonishing variety of tales which are 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.”
