Airmic Dinner raises over £10,000 for National Literacy Trust

Chairman thanks members and guests

Airmic chairman Lynda Lucas has thanked members and guests at the 2018 Airmic Dinner for raising £10,000 for her charity of the year, The National Literacy Trust.

"I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who kindly donated money," she said. "It is such an important cause - not only in improving literacy in this country, but also in helping people climb out of poverty. Its director, Jonathan Douglas, was thrilled with your generosity. Thank you again."

Ms Lucas gave a special thank you to Airmic member Charles van Oppen for his donation of 50 children's books.

Members can still donate to the charity here.

Are you a keen runner?

The National Literary Trust can arrange places on marathons and half marathons for runners who raise money for them. They also have an annual 5k and 10k fun run in Clapham Common, London. This year's fun run will take place on 17 March.
