Cause UK is getting in festive mood with A Christmas Carol. We’ve worked with TV presenter Selina Scott and Soundbites Media to produce an audio book of Dickens most famous work read by Selina. 100% of proceeds of sale of the book will go to ‘Dickens Gift to Yorkshire’ a charity set-up to establish Dickens arts and education-led initiatives.
A Christmas Carol is one of the world’s most seminal books, made into ten films and translated into sixty different languages, as well as inspiring a plethora of adaptations, such as Frank Capra’s, It’s a Wonderful Life.
Our work with Selina aims to reignite Dickens’ remarkable literary heritage, his links to Yorkshire and the message of his novel A Christmas Carol – to be kinder, more generous, more inclusive and help those in need. It’s a nice fit with the work we do at Cause UK working with charities, social enterprises and good causes.
As Dickens said about his tale:“I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.”
Merry Christmas from Cause UK!
