Volunteers are needed urgently, in the Ascot and Sunningdale area, by the charity - ABCtoRead - which helps children see the fun in learning to read. Full training given. Contact details above.

Could you help a child learn how to read and make a lasting difference to their life?

Become a virtual reading volunteer with ‘ABC (Assisting Berkshire Children) to read’ and you can do just that.

Some children may have fallen behind with their reading during the school closures, but as a volunteer you’ll receive training and support to help children catch up and build their skills and confidence.

ASCOT FREEGLE - THE SUCCESSOR TO FREECYCLE: FREE Giving, Locally, Easily

Ascot Freegle

Ascot Freegle is part of a new online re-use network called Freegle formed in the UK as a friendly alternative to Freecycle.

In just six days since Freegle was formed, 143 local groups like ours – 28% of former Freecycle groups and representing over 664,000 members (32% cent of the total UK Freecycle membership) – have moved to the new co-operative umbrella organisation, and many more groups are expected to follow us.

Freegle which means Free Giving, Locally, Easily, offers greater freedom for us to organise the way we work to suit local needs, without the rigid management hierarchy imposed by The Freecycle Network.
