A national literacy charity is looking for volunteers to help primary school children in New Mills develop a love of reading.

Beanstalk works in schools across the country, recruiting and training people to become volunteer reading helpers, who support children on a one-to-one basis, helping them to improve reading levels, increase overall confidence and inspire a lifelong love of reading.

Each Beanstalk reading helper works with three children and sees each child for two 30-minute sessions a week for a year.

Anyone who can help out in New Mills should call 0161 814 9515, email manchester@beanstalkcharity.org.uk, or see the website at www.beanstalkcharity.org.uk/reading-helpers.
