South Swindon MP Sir Robert Buckland has highlighted the work of the Reading List Foundation by naming it his latest Charity of the Week.

The national charity has recently supported students in Swindon, including a Year 13 student from Lydiard Park Academy.

Sir Robert said: "Reading List Foundation helps Year 13 students from lower-income households to succeed at university, by awarding a £250 scholarship to pay for textbooks.

"Last autumn the charity helped over 275 students across England, and since the charity was founded back in 2016, they have awarded over 1,000 scholarships."
