Volunteers urgently needed to help a child find the fun in reading

ABC to Read is a local charity that recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to mentor children that struggle to read and lack confidence.  

The volunteers provide one to one mentoring within primary schools throughout Reading and due to funding the charity have been able to extend their services to provide workshops to parents in order to give them the confidence to support their children at home. The charity are also able to provide training for school's own parent helpers.

ABC to Read are currently looking to recruit more retired people from the area.
