Equity members support reading campaign

20 June 2011

Graham SeedWe, the undersigned, wish to add our support to the Evening Standard's Get London Reading campaign, that highlights the unacceptable levels of illiteracy in our capital and throughout the UK.  As members of the actors' trade union Equity and professional readers of audiobooks, we appreciate perhaps more than most the power and the joy that comes from being able to interpret the written word.

It is shocking that in this modern day and age anyone should be deprived of the gift of literacy. We fully endorse the Evening Standard's efforts to tackle this monumental problem, and would like to assist in the campaign in any way we are able, as well as encourage others to become involved.

Yours sincerely,

Adjoa Andoh
