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. The programme aims to increase the enjoyment of, and confidence in reading whilst encouraging self-discovery for the participating children. All business volunteers who partake in this programme receive comprehensive training in advance. Up to ten volunteers from a company can participate at any one time.
