Canterbury Imagine in Bradford is a book gifting and literacy scheme aimed at getting books into the homes of under-fives in defined areas of Bradford. Weâre proud to support them with a donation which will help them expand the scheme into another part of the Manningham area.
âThis fantastic funding in our tenth anniversary year will help us to expand our book-gifting and literacy for under-5s within inner-city Bradford. Since we started in 2012, more than 76,000 free books have gone into the homes of babies and young children, and more than 1,500 children have ‘graduated’ from our scheme on their fifth birthdays. Getting books into homes encourages early literacy, talking, imagination and bonding between young children and their families. We are looking forward to bringing this into even more homes in the Manningham area this year.â â Canterbury Imagine
