Make a donation

Shannon Trust does not receive statutory funding. We are dependent upon voluntary donations from organisations and people who believe in the importance of the work we do.


Your donation, no matter how big or small, will help to make our vision, 'every prisoner a reader', a reality.

  • £5 can pay for promotional materials to reach non-reading prisoners.
  • £10 helps provide a Learner with their first reading manual.
  • £25 can provide Turning Pages reading books that help to build confidence.
  • £100 will help us train a volunteer to train and support our Mentors in prison to teach their peers to read. 

'Thank you for helping me learn to read…a couple of days ago I was able to read my child’s report for the first time ever.'
