Anthea Sutch (41) wanted to do something useful in her community, and decided to sign up to volunteer as a Reading Helper with help2read. Now, three years later, Anthea continues to take time out of her busy schedule to assist learners with their reading.
Anthea volunteers at Dennegeur Avenue Primary School, and finds the one-on-one literacy support sessions an enriching experience. “It is rewarding to help learners who need extra attention”, she said. “The look on the children’s faces when they achieve something good is the most rewarding part about being a help2read volunteer.”
With three years of volunteering under her belt, Anthea had this to say to future help2read volunteers: “It is worthwhile to help a child in need.” We couldn’t agree more, Anthea.
