Lesley Armour – The opportunity to write my book has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Thanks to the invaluable support provided by Sunderland Literacy Aid, I have gained extensive knowledge about the entire process of book creation, from conceptualisation to writing and illustration. Every step of the way, the team has been by my side, offering assistance, brainstorming ideas, addressing my questions, and providing feedback on my work in progress. Despite working independently, I have always felt connected to a supportive team. The entire journey with Sunderland Literacy Aid has played a pivotal role in turning my dream of becoming a writer and artist into a reality.
