Dame Helen Mirren Adds Support to the UK Reads Christmas Appeal
Dame Helen said: “Learning to read is such a fundamental skill and sets children up to excel at school and in life, but illiteracy is a reality for many. I am proud to support UK Reads in its aim to bring the joy and power of reading to UK children and their families who don’t have any books at home. If you can, please consider giving a gift to their Christmas appeal”.
Head of UK at WLF, Caroline Burkie said “Many of the families we need to reach with literacy support are the same families struggling to provide their children with a warm meal. This Christmas, for many children, the books they receive will be their only Christmas present. Just £3.00 will help provide a child with a bed time story filled with adventure and hope.”
