We had some very special guests in the office yesterday morning as we welcomed pupils from St Mary’s Primary School, Dorset Street.
The office visits is an exciting part of the Time to Read volunteering programme that some of our own staff have participated in this year.
The visit opens up the world of work to the children and helps to normalise the environment for them.
Time to Read provides children in second class, aged seven to nine, with reading support from a business volunteer over a 20 week programme.
