Without the help of our committed supporters, we couldn’t provide our life-changing literacy tuition for the children who are at the greatest risk of being left behind. Could you get involved and help us to help more children?

From readathons, to bake sales, or even marathons, we have an idea for everyone’s tastes and interests. We’ll support you every step of the way, and provide the materials you need to make sure your event is a success.

Take Part in a Challenge Event

We partner with Run for Charity to access over 500 running and challenge events across the country; from marathons to super hero fun runs and inflatable obstacle courses. In 2024 you can take part in any event for The Children’s Literacy Charity and every penny you raise will help disadvantaged children to close their literacy gap.
