Costa Coffee hosts Reading Week to improve UK literacy levels

Costa Coffee is inviting customers to join them in their 2nd annual reading week, taking place from 11th – 17th September 2017. Parents, teachers and children are welcome to come down to the store and enjoy a range of literacy themed activities on offer that aim to teach children about the environment, whilst also enjoying a free hot or cold beverage.

Reading Week is held in partnership with The National Literacy Trust, The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain, Keep Britain Tidy and Helping Hand Environmental. Taking place in over 500 stores nationwide, the initiative is designed to spark children’s interest in reading, aiming to tackle low literacy levels across the UK, an issue that is currently said to cost the UK economy £2.5 billion every year.

The 500+ participating stores have been handpicked based on new analysis from the National Literacy Trust and Experian which identifies the areas in England with the greatest vulnerability to literacy problems. Together, they have created a Literacy Vulnerability Score for every electoral ward and parliamentary constituency in England. This combines the charity’s understanding of the socioeconomic factors most closely associated with low literacy – such as education, income and unemployment – with Experian’s data expertise. The Literacy Vulnerability Score pinpoints the areas in England with the most acute literacy problems and where the greatest level of support is required.

The Litter Heroes storybooks will be available to read in store and have been specially created for Costa Reading Week, featuring a new story from Barney & Echo about litter and responsibility in our communities. Environmental activities booklets will also be available for children to complete, and have been designed to help stimulate young minds to begin to think about their environment and how sustainability can impact their personal choices. Costa team members will be on hand to act as reading hosts and encourage children to spend time reading with their parents or carers. Helping Hand Environmental will also be running a Design Your Own Litter Picker competition where the winning entrant will have their design manufactured for them to keep.

 

“Reading Week is part of a wider initiative established to enable Costa’s team members to make a difference to their local communities,” said Sandy Gourlay, Charity and Community Manager, Costa Coffee, “building on our commitment to the literacy agenda, we are thrilled to be able to work with partners to welcome young people to our stores this week to enjoy a good book.”

Head of Partnerships at National Literacy Trust, Lisa Rootes, added, “We have recently commissioned a report that revealed up to 40% of people in disadvantaged areas of the UK have literacy problems, which has a significant impact on their career prospects. Lacking vital literacy skills holds a person back at every stage of their life. This initiative is great as it really gets to the heart of these communities and looks to tackle to the problem.”

Costa employees will also donate approximately 30,000 ‘Barney and Echo’ books, provided by the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain, directly to their local schools. Ian Jackson, UK Project Director for Police Community Clubs, described the partnership: “Working with the team at Costa is incredibly rewarding. Their commitment to their communities coupled with their boundless energy and enthusiasm has been instrumental in creating Costa Reading Week. This week-long in-store activity will have benefits for children not only in educating them about their own environment, but will also allow them the joy of spending quality time reading with a parent, teacher or guardian. I’m certain that this fun and worthwhile project will stay with them as a positive experience throughout their young lives.”

Keep Britain Tidy, a charity partner of Costa, plays a role in increasing the long-term impact of Reading Week, by encouraging participating stores to work towards a prestigious Eco-School qualification.

Lee Wray-Davies, Eco-Schools Manager, Keep Britain Tidy, commented: “We are delighted to be supporting Costa’s Reading Week this year. If we are to prevent the littering and waste that blights our country and our planet, educating the next generation so that they do better than we have done is vital. The key messages and lessons delivered through Reading Week are very much in line with our Eco-Schools programme; using stories to show what can be done to tackle the issue of litter is a fantastic way to get the message across.”

Helping Hand Environmental will provide further valuable resources, from litter pickers to information booklets, to support schools in setting up their own litter clubs. Lindsay Richmond, Communities Partnerships Manager for Helping Hand Environmental, also commented: “Helping Hand are super proud to be involved in such a worthwhile project to engage young minds in a fun and interactive way, learning new literacy and environmental skills both in the classroom and at their local Costa store. We are delighted again to be working with Costa –  a business totally committed to making our world a better place”.

Helping Hand – Handiscoop Pro

Handiscoop ClosedHandiscoop Open

The revolutionary tool that cleans up any dog fouling, wherever you are!

Effective on all types of surfaces, it doesn’t matter where you are – on the beach or on grass – the teeth on the jaw end enable the sand to filter out or the blades of grass to remain on the ground, so you are efficiently left with just the litter, in a playground where it is paramount to keep children’s play areas clean from dog fouling, or on the tarmac of streets and pavements.

The Handiscoop Pro is easily cleanable, and can also be used with poop scoop bags, so the cleaning part is even less of a job! You can load a few bags on at the same time too, so when you next have to collect dog litter, you are already set to go! It saves you time every time.

What’s more, the Handiscoop Pro can be used with or without poop scoop bags!

Handiscoop Pro features:

  • The 81cm (32”) length prevents the need for bending down to pick up dog fouling
  • The shorter length (18″) is ideal for taking with you on walks, journeys or in a vehicle
  • It’s lightweight and portable, so you can take it anywhere
  • It doesn’t matter what surface you are picking up the mess from – sand, gravel, grass – it works a treat anywhere.
