On Saturday 8 June 2019, our CEO Sally Smith and her 3 children will be swimming across Lake Windermere to help raise money for our Peep Imagination Library Appeal.
Having books at home gives babies and young children a flying start in learning to talk and read. It makes a lasting difference to their love of stories and books and their confidence as a reader. However, not all families can afford to buy books and not all parents are confident to share books with their children. In partnership with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, we send a free book each month to 554 children aged 0-4 who live in the Leys in south Oxford where we are based, and we also offer ideas and activities to support families' book-sharing.
We urgently need funds to enable us to continue this valuable work. If you'd like to support the Appeal through Sally and her family - from a dry distance - then please donate now. Thank you!
