Thanks to all our authors, readers and supporters at the 2016 Festival who helped us donate £2,600 each to our reading charities:
- Doorstep Library, which brings the magic of books and reading into children’s homes in deprived parts of London
- RNIB Talking Books Service
- InterAct Stroke Support, which provides actors to read to stroke patients
and to St Michael & All Angels Church which hosts the Festival.
The Festival, a non-profit-making, community event, has raised over £60,000 for reading charities and St Michael & All Angels over the past eight years.
