Sarah McIntyre – Patron

Sarah’s been a Patron since 2018, from leading a parade of Sea Wigs through Manchester Children’s Hospital to helping us bring the power of our sponsored read to the whole city of Liverpool, Sarah’s support is amazing.

Sarah said: “I get asked to support a lot of charities, but the one I’ve chosen to champion is Read for Good, because what they do is so important: bringing books to children in hospital. The Readathon is a great way to encourage empathy in children who support Read for Good, helping them imagine what it would be like to be in hospital, possibly for very long stays; how stories might inspire a child who’s poorly to imagine bigger and better things outside the walls of the ward.”

In September 2023, we launched our exclusive Read for Good National Book Token, featuring Sarah’s fabulous illustrations. These beautiful Book Tokens are included in our Readathon® Thank You packs for schools who raise over £50 during their Readathon.
