Challenge Events

There are many ways to help us support prisoners who can read to teach those who can't. Why not take on a challenge and raise funds to give the gift of reading?

We’ve teamed up with Run for Charity to offer a range of exciting events for you to take part in. For some events, we have a free place so it's always worth checking us with before registering.
