Happy 10th birthday to Number Partners in Leicestershire!
Run by the business charity Leicestershire Cares in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, Number Partners has seen hundreds of volunteers from dozens of businesses volunteer with thousands of young pupils, helping boost their confidence with numeracy through playing maths games.
To mark the milestone of its first decade, a birthday cake was made for the lunchtime maths games session at Ravenhurst Primary in Braunstone Town with volunteers from Everards Brewery, one of the first firms to sign up to Number Partners back in 2006.
Says one pupil: “It’s fun. You learn to see the patterns in numbers, and at a time in the future you will know what to do.”
