News: Reading Matters for Horner Brothers


Rotherham print group, Horner Brothers has seen their work with charity group, Reading Matters rewarded at the third annual Yorkshire Forward Creating Better Futures awards.

The awards, which were handed out at the Leeds City Museum last week, recognise partnerships that benefit communities throughout the region.

Horner Brothers took home a Creating Better Futures Award, and Reading Matters won a prize of £10,000 to invest in the continued running of their project.

Horner Brothers wanted to build a relationship with a local high school and approached Reading Matters to broker that relationship. In return Reading Matters get all their printing done for free and have access to a wider pool of business supporters and volunteers.

Reading Matters, which provides one-on-one reading tuition in schools, have continued to provide support such as undertaking CRB checks on volunteers, training volunteers and organising review visits.

Catherine McGrath, Chief Executive of Reading Matters, said: "At Reading Matters, we want society in general to have a better understanding of why some young people struggle with reading and the wider negative impact that this can have on their lives, their families lives and on society as a whole.

"We will now be able to continue and develop our incredibly positive and effective work with Horner Brothers Print Group and Brinsworth Comprehensive School, a really exciting and innovative partnership.

"This award will help to raise the profile of our work still further and will enable us to continue to invest in forging relationships with other forward-thinking organisations and schools across The Yorkshire and Humber Region."
