Overnight the best news broke – Quick Reads, the charity which helps adult literacy has been saved by none other than the wonderful author – Jojo Moyes! Jojo Moyes is the best selling author of Me before You.
We have some incredible news: @jojomoyes has gifted us three years of funding for #QuickReads, just weeks after we announced we had been unable to secure financial support. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this life-changing scheme https://t.co/niZPR5n8JM pic.twitter.com/xGh9JR9gyj

Quick Reads is a series of books released every year, written by top authors, such as Jojo Moyes designed to be accessible to those less confident in reading. They are a gateway to reading as an adult which leads to mental health benefits, access to further education, confidence building and brings people into the book community. The difference these books can make was written about in my previous post.
It is wonderful she has stepped in when others didn’t and many will be forever grateful.
Thank you Jojo Moyes, and look forward to more Quick Reads in the future.
