Thank you to those who make our work possible
Our Corporate Supporters include:
TRITAX BIG BOX
Since 2019, Schoolreaders has partnered with Tritax Big Box REIT Plc, specialist investors in large logistics warehouse assets throughout the UK. Tritax Big Box was Schoolreaders’ first corporate partner and renewed its partnership in 2023 to support children in regions where their assets are based. Petrina Austin, Head of Asset Management at Tritax Big Box, comments: “Children who enter secondary school as confident readers are empowered to thrive. Conversely, poor literacy can have lifelong – even cross-generational – consequences. We’re delighted to support Schoolreaders, and its network of inspirational volunteers, in enhancing young people’s lives and academic prospects – bringing long-term benefits to communities across the UK.”
TIMES TABLES ROCK STARS
Our partnership with Times Tables Rock Stars started when they became the main sponsor for our 2019 'Be a Superstar for Schoolreaders’ campaign. TTRS, which offers award-winning programmes for times tables practice across several different platforms, have now generously pledged to continue their support this year. Nicola Reddy of TTRS says 'Whilst we are very passionate about maths, we also believe in the power of being literate and the joy of reading. Literacy is the foundation for all disciplines. Without the ability to read, write and think, other subject areas, such as maths, become a bigger challenge for students'.
Kindred delivers expert cleaning services primarily for the education sector. Formed in 1988, the company has a wealth of experience in running specialist cleaning contracts across the UK and now employs over 1,950 cleaners in schools nationwide. Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of Kindred’s business and the team is committed to supporting charities which make an active difference in communities across the country. We are delighted to have been one of Kindred’s charity partners since early 2022.
For 40 years Fired Earth has been sourcing stand out products from around the world, and the company is now synonymous with beautiful wall and floor tiles, paint, and bathroom furniture. With showrooms across the UK, the company is passionate about supporting charities which help the communities near to its stores. The Fired Earth team was inspired by Schoolreaders’ mission to raise literacy levels amongst primary school children local to its business sites. We are delighted to be Fired Earth’s charity partner.
THE WOB FOUNDATION
The Wob Foundation was created in 2022 and provides support to charitable initiatives working to improve literacy. Schoolreaders is delighted to be the first charity partner supported by the Foundation and our partnership will enable many more primary school children to receive weekly one-to-one reading support sessions. Wob is a leading global seller of used books online to millions of customers; directly, through third party platforms and wholesale partners. The business is a pioneer in the re-use and recycling of unwanted books making a real contribution to the circular economy, and its many charitable activities are also positively impacting literacy levels around the world. Wob was founded on the ethos to do good, help charities, and benefit the environment, their latest Impact Report highlights how the organisation works to stay true to these values and make a positive impact on the world.
