I always wanted to be a nurse but I had to go into hairdressing instead. When my children asked me to read to them I looked at the pictures and made stories up off the top of my head. But when they started asking why my story was different to the one their Nan read, I realised that I had to learn for them.
When I heard about this group of volunteers I thought for a long time before I plucked up the courage to contact them. I’m so glad I did as now I can read a bedtime story to my children and help them with their homework.
