As a child, I loved escaping into the world of books, and I think that everyone should be offered that opportunity. I am supporting Read for RNIB Day to help raise money for braille, large print and audio books, which can be a lifeline to children with sight loss. I urge schools all over the UK to sign up and get involved. Every little bit helps RNIB open up a world of reading to everyone. And it’s fun too!” – Darren Shan.
