We're really lucky to have the support of celebrities who support our campaigns and help spread the word about the importance of improving child literacy.

Dan Snow 

Award winning TV historian and presenter Dan Snow became a Beanstalk Ambassador in February 2017. Dan is a passionate supporter of improving children's literacy and their wider education: 

  • “Through my work I visit a lot of schools and have seen the importance of reading. In today’s world, without literacy, you’ve got nothing. You cannot engage with the internet, you can’t engage fully with society, and so it’s enormously important that we support children with their literacy now to give them the best chance of a successful future.”
  • “Beanstalk is really taking the fight on illiteracy into schools, taking it to young people. Not being able to read is a very real problem, but it is a solvable problem. Beanstalk’s volunteers make such a difference to the lives of the children they support, helping them face the world with confidence.”

We're very fortunate to enjoy the support of Dan, and we look forward to working with him to help improve children's literacy in the UK.
