Did you know…
TLC staff support a number of charities? We encourage all of our staff to get involved in some way with a local Charity and are allowed time during work to provide hands on support where and when possible.
Sharon, TLC’s Office Manager is a volunteer with Volunteer Reading Help (VRH) a national charity that provides literacy support for children aged 6 -11. Volunteers are asked to give up 3 hours of their time (2 x 90 minute sessions) each week to go into a local primary school to help children on a one-to-one basis with their reading. The aim of the charity is to create a nation of confident children, literate for life.
The West Pennine Branch of VRH is in its 22nd year of supporting children across Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Blackburn, Rochdale and Chorley, and has a team of 120 reading helpers working in 85 schools, offering much needed support to over 300 children. But, there are still many, many more children in all areas in need of additional help, especially those children who are in public care and VRH is always glad to welcome new volunteers.
