Our work in Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital

This 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 well over 10,000 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, Helen, loves meeting the children on the wards of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and sharing stories with them. Her day is jam-packed with so many wards to visit, and she always leaves children and their families cheered up from her visit.

“Thank you so much – Helen’s stories have really perked Harry up this morning!”
