IOP Publishing (IOP) has been given an award for its continuing support of Hannah More Primary School through the Ablaze Reading Buddies scheme.

IOP has been a member of the Reading Buddies volunteer scheme since 2011. The scheme, run by Bristol-based charity Ablaze, aims to develop sustainable partnerships between businesses and schools. IOP staff members participate in the scheme by reading with children at Hannah More Primary School on a weekly basis.

Karen O’Flaherty, group HR director for IOP Publishing, said “We are delighted to have received this award from Ablaze. This is a fantastic scheme and our participating staff have really enjoyed working with the children on a one-to-one basis. We look forward to supporting the goals of Ablaze in the future.”
