Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit JustGiving. 

My family and I have set up this page in memory of my grandmother, Susan Belgrave, who founded the charity now known as Coram Beanstalk (but then known as Volunteer Reading Help) in 1973. Over the following years, she and a growing team of volunteers and supporters established a programme of one-to-one reading help for children aged 3 to 13 across the country. 

Since 1973 over 190,000 children have benefitted from this vital one-to-one support, with thousands of volunteers helping them to develop their confidence, literacy skills and a love of reading, just as Susan herself did for her own children and grandchildren. A wonderful legacy for a wonderful woman.

You can read more about Susan on the charity’s website at https://www.beanstalkcharity.org.uk/blog/a-message-from-our-founder-and-president.

All donations made in Susan’s memory on this page will go directly to the charity she founded all those years ago, Coram Beanstalk.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you for remembering Susan and helping her simple idea to continue to grow and change more children’s lives.
