1000th donation to The Children's Literacy Charity
Wednesday 6th June 2018
1 in every 5 children in the UK leaves primary school without reaching the expected reading levels. The Children’s Literacy Charity aims to see underachieving children recognise their value and achieve their true potential. They provide one-to-one literacy tuition, training, mentoring schemes, and volunteers to ensure positive literacy outcomes for children and young people from deprived areas of the country.
Paper Round has been working with The Children’s Literacy Charity since January 2015, donating the value of a tutoring session for every 10 PC’s or laptops we collect from our customers. We are thrilled to be working with such an inspiring charity, doing so much to help children and young people who are struggling to develop their literacy skills.
‘1,000 tuition donations is a great achievement but there is much more we can do. We have had such a great response from our IT Asset Disposal customers in supporting a great charity. Hope we can build on this success in helping a fantastic charity battle literacy difficulties in London, Essex and Manchester.’ Sammy Badraia, our Secure Paper ITAD Manager
At the end of May, 5 of our team ran the 10K Vitality run in aid of the Children’s Literacy Charity – if you wish to donate please head to their page.
