Why help us?
According to research published by the Institute of Education in February 2014 (Research Briefing No. 106), children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better at school than their peers who do not. “Reading for fun improves not only literacy but maths attainment too. From a policy perspective, this strongly supports the need to support and encourage children’s reading in their leisure time, especially given that the available evidence on trends over time suggests that children’s reading for pleasure has declined in recent years.”
Maidenhead’s Big Read is an independent, not-for-profit organisation and therefore relies solely on from grant funding and corporate sponsorship to cover the costs of the event.
We are passionate about bringing reading to life for all residents in the local area and therefore are proud to offer events that are free to attend to ensure we reach out to every sector of our local community.
