By Nick Parker, Beanstalk's Director of Operations and a trained reading helper. 

This Volunteers’ Week we want to thank all our trained reading helpers who help change a child’s life each and every week. You truly do an amazing job in helping to transform the reading ability and confidence of young children, helping them to reach their true potential and succeed in life.

As a thank you, we’ve put together a short film in your honour. The film, which we’re calling #readinghelperand..., show all the fun things our volunteers get up to outside of their Beanstalk reading sessions and how anyone can volunteer with Beanstalk, regardless of your age or interests!

If you enjoy the film, please share it with your friends and family…you never know, they may be our next reading helper!

If you would like to become a Beanstalk reading helper then it’s really easy to get involved, I can’t recommend it enough!
