Listening Books

The James Beattie Trust has supported Listening Books in delivering our audiobook service to many people in the local community who find it difficult or impossible to read print due to an impairment, such as arthritis, glaucoma or dyslexia.  Such fantastic support has helped to spread the joy of reading throughout Wolverhampton via the spoken word.


Thank you again for your help.

Brickkiln Dunstall Gateway Club

The Club has been running 30 years and provides tailored social activities for 17 profoundly disabled Members over the age of 25 residing in the City of Wolverhampton.

Our activities include arts and crafts, cultural themed evenings, indoor gardening, adapted sports and in the summer months visits to nearby places of interest. If the Club did not exist many of our Members would not have any meaningful social life.

We rely on the generosity of local and national charitable organisations for funding and we are particularly grateful to the James Beattie Charitable Trust who has provided both financial support and encouragement for many years.

Theodora Children’s Charity- Giggle Doctor

We want to say a big thank you to The James Beattie Trust for your very generous donation, which will provide magical Giggle Doctor moments to 100 sick children at Birmingham Children’s Hospital this year.

A stay in hospital can be very frightening for a child. Our Giggle Doctors visit children individually at their bedside. They combine music, play and storytelling to bring magical moments to children facing huge challenges with their health.

“My daughter didn’t want to talk, eat or drink after her operation but then Dr Snug and Dr Geehee appeared and worked their magic. She ate, drank and spoke! She even got up and danced. Thank you so much!”
