Appeal for reading volunteers
Published on: 02 Oct 2017
A PROJECT in which retired people go into schools to support children with reading is looking for more volunteers in Downend, Emersons Green and Staple Hill.
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) helps pupils become fluent and confident readers and also make reading fun.
The organisation, which is part of the national charity Volunteering Matters and specialises in volunteering for those aged 50 plus, is already working in South Gloucestershire, including at Blackhorse Primary in Emersons Green, and would like to put volunteers into more schools. It is also active in schools in Bristol, Bath and North Somerset,
