About my fundraising

On Saturday, 29 June, the Read family and supporters will be joining the NCTJ in Essex for a 15km sponsored walk to raise money for the Thomas Read bursary.

The Thomas Read bursary was set up in the memory of the young Sky Sports News journalist Thomas Read, who died unexpectedly in 2015, aged 25. Thomas was an inspirational young journalist who, in spite of his cerebral palsy, achieved a substantial amount in the field of journalism in a short space of time.

Each year the bursary is awarded through the Journalism Diversity Fund to an aspiring journalist with a disability or long-term physical or mental illness, funding their NCTJ journalism training.

Please support this very worthy cause to help people with disabilities train to be journalists.
