Suggested title for emails: Make learning an adventure - volunteer with The Hackney Pirates
Hi ______,
The Hackney Pirates are looking for more volunteers to join their crew in supporting local young people to develop literacy, confidence and perseverance. 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 which are screened in a local cinema. The commitment required of volunteers is very low, just one session a month (3.45pm to 6.45pm) and they provide full training and a free DBS check.
I think you would be a great volunteer! You can find out more and sign up here:
If you are interested in supporting and would like more information, please email
