Leicestershire Cares is an organisation based in Leicester. It brings businesses and communities together for the benefit of all, through employee volunteering. They provide volunteering opportunities for companies looking to get involved with communities in Leicestershire and Rutland.
A selection of our Year 4 children worked with employees from Melton Foods last year and the year before on an exciting project called Number Partners. The employees came in for half an hour, twice a week, to play Maths games with pairs of children. The Year 4 pupils were invited to The Melton Foods site and were treated to a VIP tour which ended in a yummy buffet with the volunteers. The volunteers also attended a special assembly in the Summer term and presented the children with certificates. The children presented the volunteers with cards and gifts.
The scheme will continue this academic year (2018-2019) but with Year 2 children.
