Featured Poem: The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear
We recently held a special Afternoon Tea celebration event for our North West volunteers, many of whom are part of our Big Lottery funded Merseyside Volunteer Reader Scheme. They go into care homes every week to deliver shared reading sessions with the residents, improving their own confidence and the lives of those they read with.
Both volunteers and care home residents came along to the Afternoon Tea, with many of them taking turns to read poems aloud, enjoying shared reading on a grand scale. A clear favourite was Edward Lear’s ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’, which had everyone in the room joining in together – childhood poems never get old.
