Volunteer of the Month: November 2023

29 Nov 2023

By Laura Hill, Volunteering Manager

Our corporate volunteers have been busy celebrating Number Confidence Week throughout November. Volunteers from Capital One, Experian, Vanquis Banking Group and TP ICAP have enjoyed sharing their experiences and inspiring children across the UK to feel confident with numbers and see the value of maths in the real world.

We’re pleased to announce that our November Volunteer of the Month is Michael Ball, Settlements Operations Manager from TP ICAP.

Michael delivered his first ever My Maths Story assembly at Holy Child Primary School in Belfast and it was a big success!

The school said:

“We have just had an amazing assembly with Michael. He was so good with the children, very clear, friendly and showed a real love of maths and an understanding of the struggles some children might have. The children were engaged and interacted well. Michael’s delivery was well paced and very child friendly. The slide deck worked well. The children (and staff) loved it!”

A huge well done to Michael and thank you to all the volunteers who have visited schools as part of our Number Confidence Week campaign.
