Our work in the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital

The young patients of this huge hospital in the centre of Manchester have been benefiting from our regular supply of books and storyteller visits since 2014. Manchester is one of the UK’s biggest and busiest hospitals, and we’ve delivered nearly 15,000 incredible, brand new books to the hospital since we launched.

Books can play a vital role in improving the experience of a child being in hospital – providing escape and distraction, comfort and reassurance.

Our storyteller, Amanda, continues the incredible hard work started by our previous storyteller, Helen, and looks forward to meeting the children on the wards of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and sharing stories with them (whether in person or through virtual storytelling).
