Time to give – Time to Read

McAvoy Think Smart Build Smart, the leading offsite modular construction firm, has signed up to the Time to Read programme. Time to Read is a volunteering initiative developed by Business in the Community to foster a love of reading and build confidence and social skills of children at Key Stage 2.

McAvoy staff have been matched with the children in P5 of  the local Primate Dixon Primary School. Employees will spend one hour each week doing one-to-one paired reading with the children.  McAvoy believes that not only the pupils will benefit from this programme, but that its employees will also gain a huge sense of achievement and personal development from the program.
