The Children’s Literacy Charity
Established by a group of former teachers who recognised an overwhelming need for additional literacy support in local schools, the charity provides high-quality, one-to-one literacy interventions for disadvantaged children who are at risk of being left behind.
We get involved in regular fundraising activities and all proceeds raised go directly to The Children’s Literacy Charity. Events so far include a 200-metre abseil down the iconic Cheesegrater building in London, a 100-mile static cycle from our office in Cornhill to Calais and a half marathon across the city of London.
We also regularly visit local schools to witness first-hand the impact that The Children’s Literacy Charity is having on the students they support. We spend time reading with the children and keep in touch with them via a pen pal scheme, enabling us to see how their literacy skills are improving.
Our partnership with The Children’s Literacy Charity is more than a simple fundraising activity or school visit every now and again. Literacy is a fundamental skill and this exceptional charity reflects the principles of our business; we are investing in the outstanding communicators of the future.
