I am thrilled to be a Coram Beanstalk Author Supporter because the work they do changes lives for the better. After something of a struggle, my mum got me into reading through one-to-one sharing of newspapers, magazines and books. I want to help Coram Beanstalk provide one-to-one support to other potential readers, so that they can have the support and opportunities I had.
