Axminster Read Easy group member receives a certificate after completing six novels

A 23-year-old Axminster man who struggled with his reading has received a special certificate after completing a six book challenge.

Since joining the Seaton and Axminster Read Easy Group, Michael Stone has made great progress under tutor Pippa Brough.

Co-ordinator Sheila Abdy said: “This young man has really done well in the nine months that we have been coaching him.

“Read Easy gives free, one-to-one confidential reading tuition to any adult who either can’t read or who lacks confidence with reading.

“They work with a volunteer trained reading coach from a special book called the Yes we can read manual. Reading sessions last half an hour and take place twice a week and the important thing is that everyone can work at their own pace.”

Read Easy Axminster and Seaton, which is part of Read Easy UK, was set up about 18 months ago and has so far enrolled 20 readers. To find out more, contact Sheila Abdy on 01297 552847 or email sheila@readeasy.org.uk. The Read Easy website is www.readeasy.org.uk
