Volunteers Needed to Help Children Improve Their Reading.
The local branch of a national charity is looking for volunteers to help children who have fallen behind with their reading. East Kent Freemasons, their partners and other family members are invited to help this worthy cause.
Beanstalk is a national children’s reading charity which has been established in Kent for over twenty-five years. The South-East branch is seeking more volunteers to help in a number of ways, for example:-
- as a reading helper
- as a fundraiser
- by taking part in an organised event
The charity recruits, trains and supports volunteers to offer a variety of school-based interventions aimed at helping children who struggle with reading. They currently have a network of over 300 volunteers who work with more than 1000 children in over 160 settings across the county. They offer exciting and rewarding opportunities, and robust training for a wide range of volunteers, all of whom help make a real difference to the lives, wellbeing and aspirations of local children.
Their success is built on the dedication and energy of their staff and volunteers, their commitment to helping as many children as possible, and their ability to network, influence and work with a range of partners from across the public, private and voluntary sectors. Together they invest in children’s futures.
