Bringing The Reader Mansion House to life

Written by Martin Gallagher, 18th December 2018

In Spring 2019, we’ll be opening The Reader Mansion House in Calderstones Park, where there will be a vibrant programme designed to help people experience literature, be nourished, develop new skills and explore their creativity:

That means even more opportunities to get involved with our pioneering work:

  • 16 new Shared Reading groups, with up to 32 new Reader Leader roles.
  • DIY volunteers to help us smooth some edges ahead of opening the doors to our newly renovated HQ.
  • Reception volunteers to welcome and guide our visitors.
  • Arts and well-being volunteers to share their passion through a new weekly group.
  • Outdoor volunteers to care for our open spaces.
  • Heritage volunteers to bring the ancient Calder Stones into the 21st century.
  • Event volunteers to support our wide-ranging programme.
  • Advocates to shout about what’s now on offer.

If you have a great idea for an arts or well-being group that should be part of our programme, or if you’d like to find out more about any of these opportunities, email volunteer@thereader.org.uk.
