Ahoy there! Thank you so much for helping us recruit new potential volunteers.
Word of mouth is the main way we are able to keep our ship running, so your help spreading the word is invaluable!
Here’s how you can help:
Tell your friends and family!
Do you know anyone who would enjoy volunteering with us?
Pass on this link and let them have a look for themselves.
Tell them to email email@example.com if they would like to discuss volunteering.
Tell your colleagues!
As you know volunteering with children can be very rewarding. If any of your colleagues can spare one afternoon a month, they can have a real impact on children’s lives.
See if your HR department would be happy circulating this email text around the office:
The Hackney Pirates are a children’s charity, focusing on helping children improve their literacy skills, and we’re looking for volunteers to join our crew!
Can you spare one afternoon a month to help make a huge difference in young people’s lives?
Volunteer Crewmates work one-to-one or in small groups with children aged 9-13, supporting them with reading and creative writing activities. The writing children produce is then published in the form of books, studio recordings, smartphone apps and films. The commitment required of volunteers is very low, just one session a month (3.45pm to 6.45pm).
I think you'd make a great Volunteer Crewmate! You can find out more and sign up here: http://www.hackneypirates.org/volunteer-with-the-hackney-pirates
