Storybook Dads with @minniebirch

Today Minnie Birch was in the studio to discuss a charity she works with. Minnie, a local singer/songwriter who has also appeared on The Drivetime Sessions, works with Storybook Dads.

Storybook Dads is a charity that allows fathers in prison or in the armed forces to send recordings of themselves reading bedtime stories to their children.

Minnie says that the rehabilitative effect of this work is immense, with prisoners who take part six times less likely to re-offend, with the added effect of improving prisoner literacy.
