Sharon Berry

Sharon Berry is the founder and Chief Executive of Storybook Dads which achieved Overall winner in the 2007 Charity Awards.

The ground-breaking charity offers imprisoned parents the opportunity to send their children a CD recording of them reading a bedtime story, creating a relationship with their children despite the physical barriers. 

Berry set up the charity after volunteering at a prison radio station and being surprised by the experience:

“I had never been in a prison before, but ended up spending one day a week as writer-in-residence...it was not what I expected. It was not intimidating at all, but very rewarding,” she said.
