Volunteer of the Month: December 2023

18 Dec 2023

By Laura Hill, Volunteering Manager

We've had a fantastic year of National Numeracy's corporate volunteering programme. During 2023 volunteers from our partner organisations Capital One, Experian, Vanquis Banking Group and TP ICAP have visited 69 schools across the UK, delivering 70 'My Maths Story' assemblies and 67 'Maths in the Real World' classroom sessions – inspiring nearly 12,000 children to feel confident and enthusiastic about numbers.

We’re pleased to announce that our final Volunteer of the Month for 2023 is Richard Padley, Service Operations Manager at Experian.

Richard has visited four schools in Nottingham this year and received fantastic feedback from them all. Richard also recently took part in our corporate volunteering case study, talking about his experiences of volunteering with National Numeracy.

Joseph Turner, Deputy Head at Milford Academy in Nottingham said:

“The children really responded to the information in Richard’s assembly and could see links in the real world. The scenarios in the teaching session helped break stereotypes. It was all excellent and the children enjoyed it!”

Congratulations to Richard and thank you to all the volunteers who have visited schools as part of the National Numeracy corporate volunteering programme in 2023.
