Our work in Hull Royal Infirmary

Our service bringing brand new books and regular storyteller visits started in 2014, and to date, we’ve delivered over 5,000 carefully-chosen books for children to enjoy with their families.

“My daughter loves the book she chose to read, it cheered her up loads. Thank you.”

Parent of 13-year-old patient, Hull Royal Infirmary

Hull Infirmary enjoys regular visits from, Graham, our original Read for Good Storyteller, in every sense! Our highly experienced and seasoned Storyteller can always bring on a smile and a belly laugh when he tells his fabulous stories.

“The Read for Good scheme builds links with all staff on the wards as well as parents and carers. It creates a small bright quiet space where there may only be dull noisy times when you are in hospital. The vibrant, mobile bookcase helps foster links between the wards, children’s outpatients department and children’s A & E, as well as pre-assessment, paediatric high dependency. It is really good for building relationships amongst our busy day jobs!”

Jo Leeman, Hospital Education Manager
“When they made Graham, they threw the mould away! He’s been a credit to your organisation and an outstanding Storyteller.”
