Oxfordshire resident Rod Nicolson is Bicycling for Books and fundraising for our local Dolly Parton Imagination Library! On 20th August 2023 he will be cycling 1,200 km in 90 hours in the prestigious (and gruelling!) Paris-Brest-Paris cycling event - he hopes to raise £5000 in the process, and we'd love your support!
Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a book-gifting programme, set up by Dolly to increase the number of children’s books in families’ homes. Each child receives a free book to keep, every month from birth to five, delivered directly to them at their home address. Having books at home makes a real difference to babies' and children’s love of stories and books, and gives them a flying start in learning to talk and read. Our Peep and Growing Minds Imagination Library provides books for children in the Leys, Berinsfield and Littlemore areas of south Oxford.
