Become a volunteer reading helper "This is one of the highlights of my week, I enjoy interacting with the pupils and seeing them get excited by books we read together. They enjoy picking new books each week and their reading has steadily improved and become more expressive." Wilma Briggs, Solihull We're active across England and growing.
