We fund free books for under-5s in Bradford to encourage early literacy & love of books

Story

In March I'll be running the Sheffield Half Marathon to raise money for Canterbury Imagine.

Canterbury Imagine is a charity that aims to improve literacy and life chances in some of the most deprived areas of Bradford. This is done by providing children with a free book every month from birth until their 5th birthday.


In December the charity provided 742 children with books and since the charity started in 2013 has sent out over 42,000 books to children in Bradford.

I've reached my initial target of £250, which will fund books for 2 children for 5 years (equivalent to 120 books). My new goal is £600 which will fully fund 5 children for 5 years (300 books).
