 “I absolutely agree with the point and purpose of the National Literacy Trust. Reading opens so many doors, enriches lives and is at its heart an enabler. I have met people who only started to read in their 40s and 50s and the joy it brings to their lives is wonderful to see. Reading inspires confidence, teaches empathy and creates a desire to communicate. Reading provides more life choices.”
