Bookmark is a literacy charity is currently offering volunteer opportunities to the Hither Green and Lee community.
They are on a mission to help children learn to read;
Bookmark volunteers visit their local school twice a week to work with a child, age 5 – 8, who needs extra reading support. During 30-minute sessions volunteers help the child develop their skills and confidence, using resources and literacy games provided by Bookmark
How does it work?: On the Bookmark App volunteers can choose which school to work in and when, with sessions usually available in the afternoon and the start of school.
The charity will start work with schools in Lewisham including three in the Hither Green area, so why not help ensure local children get extra support this academic year?
