Primary Futures – ‘Save the date’ to inspire Blackpool children

Since the launch of our Primary Futures campaign in Blackpool last summer we have been absolutely overwhelmed by the fantastic response from local volunteers from many diverse backgrounds, and their willingness to dedicate their time to the community and children in primary schools – thank you!

As part of the campaign we are organising Primary Futures ‘Aspirations Week’, a really exciting series of events and activities across the area from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th May – so save the date. Over the next couple of weeks you’ll be receiving an email from Andy Mellor, head teacher of St Nicholas Primary School, with further details of the plans and inquiring about  your availability to attend one of the activities.

If you are able to volunteer, you will then be messaged directly by a school inviting you to join them for their Primary Futures events. Don’t worry if you’ve not spoken at a primary school before – we’ve got lots of guidance and resources we can send you to help plan your visit. We’re aiming to provide opportunities for every Blackpool volunteer who can make it so send this email along to a friend and get them to register by clicking here.
