Can you help with adult literacy?

We are looking for someone who would be able to help provide support for an adult looking to improve their reading and writing skills.   This would be on a voluntary basis and delivered in the Worcester Park area.

Wool and Knitters stitched together

The wool, which was donated to us, has been given a home.  Age UK Sutton has a group Purls of Wisdom which meet up and knit – they got in touch with us over Twitter and we dropped off the wool this afternoon.

We just loved their tweet in response to the delivery – very creative and funny – thanks!

If you have any spare wool, either get in touch with us or go directly to Age UK Sutton, offices just outside the Council’s Civic Office main entrance.
