GIVE

Although free, Story Teller: Members’ Edition aims to raise money for two charities. We would be delighted if you could help us support both Children on the Edge and First Story charities. You can donate via our Virgin Money Giving page.

Children on the Edge

Children on the Edge support over 15,000 of the world’s most marginalised children to realise their rights, through the provision of education and the creation of protective environments. These are children without parental care, neglected or persecuted by their governments, ignored by international media and missed by large overseas agencies.

First Story

First Story is England’s leading creative writing charity for young people. They pair professional writers with secondary schools in low-income communities, where they work intensively to develop young people’s creativity, confidence, literacy and ability.

Story Teller: Members’ Edition is produced by members of the Story Teller Facebook Group. It is edited by Antonio Pineda and Jo Huysamen, designed by Adam Dalton, and with the audio edited by Marc Checkley, Darren Prescott and Rex Duis. We thank Eaglesmoss Collections, who own the rights to Story Teller, for supporting this project.
