RNIB Read’s partnership with children’s publisher Walker Books began in 2011, and focuses support on the work RNIB do around accessible reading.
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!
2014 will see us further develop our partnership as RNIB Read is proud to be announced as the official charity partner for the 25th anniversary of the much loved children’s classic by Michael Rosen’s “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”.
Join us on the World’s Biggest Ever Bear Hunt and help RNIB to open up a world of reading for blind and partially sighted children. Working with Walker Books we will be making sure all children, whether sighted, partially sighted or blind can join the Bear Hunt.
Free book giveaway
This follows on from the 70,000 copies of “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen that we jointly gave away in 2013. Using a voucher from The Daily Express newspaper supporters were able to claim their free book at Morrison’s stores nationwide, encouraging them to sign up to RNIB Read 2014.
Over the years Walker Books have also generously provided RNIB Read with images from one of the best known children’s book illustrators, Helen Oxenbury, which can be seen on previous fundraising packs, materials and in bus, tube and train stop adverts all over the country!
