With the support of about 450 volunteers plus a bunch of us from OVO, Literacy Pirates helped 150 children improve their reading and writing. You can take a look at how these ‘young pirates’ performed their creative writing by watching this short film – screened at a local cinema in front of an audience of 350 people.
“Having the chance to speak with OVO staff and have some of them volunteer with us was a fantastic bonus and allowed us to grow a supportive and engaging relationship. Always open and communicative, OVO actively asked about our needs throughout the year and responded to them. For example, OVO staff held a Christmas book collection to help us stock the library at our brand new learning centre. The OVO team were also present at our celebration event, lending first-hand support to the young people on our programme. Thanks for a fantastic year, OVO!”
As always, we’ve immensely enjoyed working with our OVO Gives Back partners – and we’re ready to start it all over again next year. We can’t wait.
