In an area of recognised deprivation our input has proven to have had major positives. The scheme has had a string of glowing reports from parents, teachers, politicians and most importantly the children. There has proven to be a need for our endevour and a lot of hard graft behind the scenes and to the forefront of operations has seen a huge amount of progress in the attitudes, applcations and aspirations of countless children. There is a benefit to our young citizens and thus the community.Our impact on the community
There are significant strides when children find literacy to be educational, entertaining and enjoyable. It is a joy to enthuse our future adults. Our self penned stories are popular with ethical, moral and social pointers offering guidance within the context of effective literature. Other intervention introduces various guests such as The Dogs Trust, police and firefighters who back our work. 'Thanks for not giving up on me' was one plaudit that backs our 'life is a test,just try best' mantra.
