On 29th May this year, our Trustee Steven Artist took part in the Edinburgh Marathon. Not only did Steven complete the course in an incredible time of 2 hours 50 minutes he also raised over £1,405 for our charity!
Steven has been a Trustee of The Children’s Literacy Charity since March 2017 and has been a supporter of our charity for many years. Steven says, “This is a charity very close to my heart and one I have supported for the last 16 years due to the amazing work they do with disadvantaged children struggling with literacy. Their intervention is genuinely life changing.
While I did not directly benefit from the charity’s amazing work, I know first-hand the value of early years intervention and 1:1 help having struggled significantly with literacy throughout my life. The support I was lucky enough to receive in my childhood changed my life and enabled my onward education and career.”
Thank you, Steven! Trustee… and now a fundraising superstar!
