Even more people will get the chance to learn to read and improve other basic skills, as Shannon Trust receives an unrestricted grant of £80,000 from The Big ASK Foundation.


The generous donation from The Big ASK will support Shannon Trust as they launch their new 3-year strategy.


Ian Merrill, CEO of Shannon Trust, said: “We are delighted to be working with The Big ASK, as we embark on an exciting time at Shannon Trust.


“With our 2022-2024 strategy, we aim to increase the number of people completing our reading programme in prisons, grow the availability of our programmes in the community, and test new ideas to address other basic skill gaps, scaling what works.


“The Big ASK will help make this a reality, by supporting us to ensure nobody is left out of learning.”


The Big ASK has a passion for education, training and counselling, and supports charities that bring about positive, lasting, measurable change in people’s lives.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragra

phs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin

editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, bloc

kquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
