Literacy Capital plc is a closed-end investment company focused on investing and supporting UK businesses. The company also has a unique charitable objective to donate 0.9% of assets every year to literacy charities in the UK. Literacy Capital is proud to support Bookmark Reading Charity’s urgent appeal to provide a warm welcome to Ukrainian children arriving in the UK through packs containing high-quality, bilingual books, magazines, activities, school packs and tablets pre-loaded with educational and language apps and eBooks in English and their home language.
Reading has been proven to support a child’s mental health, personal and social development. Bookmark wants every child to read, no matter where they’re from. In the words of C.S Lewis, “"We read to know that we are not alone." If you would like to support Bookmark’s work in providing a warm welcome to a child who has been through so much, please donate through their JustGiving page. Every £5,000 donated will enable Bookmark to support 20 refugee children.
