Brough Girling

Children’s author and former teacher, Brough Girling spearheaded Readathon’s sponsored read in schools, which began in 1984. In 2009, the charity Read for Good was established to continue Brough’s work of motivating millions of school children to read for fun through sponsored reads. Read for Good still adheres to Brough’s original principles for reading to be fun, children must be able to choose what they want to read, read without assessment, and for all reading to be valued.
