We would like to say a huge congratulations to our amazing tutor, Andrea who has been awarded a Girdlers’ Medallion, in recognition of her work for our charity! In May each year the Girders’ Company Charitable Trust holds its Prizegiving evening at Girdlers’ Hall.  Medallions are presented by the Master Girdler to individuals in recognition of their talents and endeavours. Each winner is nominated by one of the charities whose work the Trust supports on a long term basis.

Starting out as a volunteer for our charity, 14 years ago after her son was supported through our literacy programme, Andrea is now Senior Literacy Intervention Tutor at our Literacy Lab at Mauldeth Road Primary School in Manchester.

Andrea’s one-to-one tuition has become integral to our support programme for those children who have struggled with reading and who have needed an extra helping hand. Andrea is completely dedicated to her work and she has always given her all to maximise the progress of the children she supports. Her relationships, with pupils and staff, are really strong and this underpins the excellent work she has done. Past pupils have often referred to the time they spent with her, even many years afterwards. She is recalled by them with the same fondness and respect that we, as a staff, feel for her. Well done Andrea, we are so proud of you!
