Poems From A Showbox for The British Dyslexia Association

Fundraising for British Dyslexia Association
raised of £1,000 target
We promote understanding to campaign for change, influencing policy


I have been writing poetry for 30-odd years, but only recently decided to do something with them. They are being published on my website www.poems-from-a-shoebox.com and shortly in book format. For each poem, I have nominated a charity with the hope that readers of my poems will donate to the chosen charity.

I have suffered with dyslexia all my life and school years were difficult but I have learnt techniques for dealing with it.

Charities such as the British Dyslexic Association help give young people the tuition and tools they need to deal with the difficulties they encounter and show them that although poor spelling and problems with reading and writing can bring embarrassment and undermine confidence there are ways to manage it.

If you enjoy my poems please consider making a donation.
