Meeting the Prime Minister

Written by jen, 18th June 2007

Last Wednesday Jane Davis and Kate McDonnell were invited to a reception held by the Prime Minister for public sector champions. Mr Blair said that he wanted to thank people who had done something special. Jane and Kate’s invitation came in recognition of the ground breaking Get Into Reading project, which works at the cutting edge of reading and health practice.

Along with Doctor Shyamal Mukherjee Kate and Jane were invited to have a few minutes with the PM who was interested to hear about Get Into Reading. He told Kate that his favourite book is Ivanhoe. He also said that he hadn’t enjoyed reading at school, despite having an inspiring English teacher, it was only in later life that he came to enjoy it.

Doctor Mukherjee invited the Prime Minister to visit Wirral’s Get Into Reading project once he has had a rest. If you would like to watch the moment Jane and Kate met the Prime Minister, just select the video footage below.
