Lu Fraser – Ambassador

We first ‘met’ Lu when our Fundraising and Digital Officer was asked to join the judging panel for Oscar’s Book Prize 2021. And while we obviously can’t possibly reveal the inner workings of a judge’s mind… we were thrilled with the final winner! The Littlest Yak – “a joyous, rhyming caper that teaches little ones to celebrate their own unique talents, follows the journey of Gertie, the littlest yak in the whole herd.”

Since then, we’ve got to know Lu a little better, and it is clear our passions and value totally align. We are proud to welcome Lu as an Ambassador for Read for Good.

“Read for Good champions every bookish thing that matters to me and, far more importantly, every bookish thing that matters to thousands of children around the UK. Their Readathon is an ingenious way of encouraging a genuine love of books whilst simultaneously funding school libraries AND bringing light to children in hospital at some of their most difficult times. Read for Good changes lives in the most wonderful way…”

The Littlest Yak, Lu’s  debut book, was the winner of The Oscar’s Book Prize 2021, The Sainsbury’s Best Picture Book 2021 & the Sainsbury’s Children’s Book of the Year 2021.  Lu kindly donated 30 copies of The Littlest Yak to Read for Good’s Hospital programme.
