The charity Give A Book uses donations in a 'practical and targeted way' to get books to 'prisons, schools and...disadvantaged children' and to 'promote...the pleasure of reading in the hardest to reach places'. With so many threats, cuts and limits to free access to books, this admirable work is needed now more than ever. Reading by Lamplight (undated) by Donald McIntyre (1923-2009) is in the Paintings in Hospitals collection; it captures exactly what the charity aims to achieve.
