Our work in the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading

We’ve been providing books and stories to the Royal Berkshire Hospital since 2015.

We carefully select the books for our hospital programme, ensuring there is a broad range for children of all abilities to choose from. Each delivery is made up of fiction and non-fiction titles, best-sellers and award-winners, picture books, and chapter books, meaning there really is something for everyone.

“I wasn’t at all expecting to be given a brand new book which we could keep. That same book has become a bedtime routine, and it still is nearly a month after being discharged. It’s lovely for the children and parents to get something small but really meaningful at times when I as a parent felt at my lowest having to sit by my sick child’s bedside.”

Children and their families soak up traditional tales and enchanting stories from our highly experienced storyteller, Adele. Adele loves seeing the joy in the faces of a young patient when they are delighted by her stories.
