As well as helping candidates make the right decisions for their career and clients make the right choices in candidates to grow their business, we here at Atwood Tate are passionate about the bigger picture – namely, that people have the resources to read and improve their lives. Because of this we actively support the Beanstalk charity.

Beanstalk has entered into Direct Debit’s Big Break competition and they need our votes to be in a with a chance of winning £2,000 – enough to provide vital literacy support to 6 children for a whole year!

Beanstalk’s profile is now live and they have until 30th April to get as many votes as possible if they want to scoop the top prize. Every vote counts as the second placed good cause will receive £1,000 and the runners up will receive a share of £2,000. To cast your vote, please follow the link.

Last month’s winner received over 3000 votes so we encourage you to vote for Beanstalk today! The more votes we can get the better so we ask you to please share on your Facebook page and among your friends and family and ask them to pass it on too.

A donation of £2,000 would help Beanstalk make a life changing difference to child in need.

Thank you for your support!

Volunteer Reading Help and Carnival of the Animals

Atwood Tate is very proud to be a supporter of a wonderful charity called Volunteer Reading Help. VRH aims to help improve children’s literacy, and provide one-to-one literacy support to over 6,000 children each week.

A recent review showed just how effective this support is. Of the children currently registered on their evaluation system, 39% were referred because their reading was below the expected national curriculum level. First term results currently show that 59% had improved by at least one sub reading level with 6% progressing between 4 and 8 sub levels! This really is a remarkable improvement – average progress was 0.2 sub levels prior to VRH’s intervention.

Volunteer Reading Help are joining forces with the New London Orchestra on July 5th to host a concert celebrating literacy and music. ‘Carnival of the Animals’, conducted by Ronald Corp OBE, will feature St Matthew’s school choir and original poetry by St. Peter’s Primary. You can buy tickets at carnivaloftheanimals.eventbrite.com or through the New London Orchestra’s website. The event has been kindly sponsored by Victoria Business Improvement District, all profits raised will support the work of both charities.
