Beanstalk is a national Reading Charity of over 40 years standing. Their Patron is the Duchess of Cornwall and their aim is to support as many children as they can.
They do this by recruiting volunteers to go into schools to help Primary and Early Years aged children to increase their confidence and enjoyment of reading.
Each selected volunteer is trained and supported by Beanstalk, who also organise and pay for all Safeguarding checks.
The volunteer is then placed in a school and works with three children twice a week, for between 20-30 minutes each.
Beanstalk choose schools within a 5 mile radius of the volunteers’ homes, and pay travelling expenses for the journey to and from home.
Their volunteers tell them they thoroughly enjoy their time with the children and how much they look forward to the sessions and how they help them.
Beanstalk Reading Volunteers make a difference.
Beanstalk has been active in the Leeds, Bradford and South Yorkshire areas for some time and is always looking for volunteers.
