Could you spare 90 minutes twice a week to make a difference to a child in your local area? Beanstalk is searching for members of the community in Northiam and the surrounding area to help children with reading in local primary schools.

Beanstalk is a national literacy charity that transforms children’s life chances by supporting volunteers to work in primary schools with children who have fallen behind with their reading.

A Beanstalk volunteer will spend 30 minutes 1-to-1 with the child twice a week and try to bring the joy into reading, by reading fun books together, chatting and playing games. Very importantly, Beanstalk sessions are meant to be very different from normal school and are relaxed, informal and fun.

If you have a passion for reading and can share this with a child then do please contact us. Full training and support is provided.
