Read for Good

A charity, previously sponsored the Trust, has been awarded £1925 to help continue to fund the Readathon project, (part of the Read for Good Charity) in the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading.

Read for Good

For children in hospital, books and stories are particularly important – they comfort, distract, reassure and entertain. Read for Good provides a regular supply of brand new books along with storyteller visits to brighten up the days of children in all of the UK’s main children’s hospitals. Children unable to leave their beds can choose books from our specially designed mobile bookcase which wheels right up to their bedside. Because they are brand new, the books are safe for those at high risk of infection.

“Good books are as important as good doctors when you are in hospital. One makes your body better and the other your soul.”
