The Literacy Pirates

We work with children in Hackney aged 9-12 to help them improve their literacy

Charity Registration No. 1145115


      Ana is giving up chocolate, Bart is cutting on coffee & alcohol, Gonzalo is cycling to work, Karen is leaving her addiction for soft drinks, Maria is cutting on unhealthy snacks and Oscar on take-away fast food.
Do you see a pattern here?

We needed to change something in our lifestyles and we felt compelled to help others living better lives as well.
Putting the two together we came up with Get Healthy and Help - an initiative to motivate each other to commit to something that will help:
- ourselves have a healthier lifestyle - for 1 month to start with, which the experience and good results will make us want to extend for a longer time
- others with the money saved in a not so healthy habit that we can give to charity and through the donations of our friends sponsoring us!

Intrigued? Be our sponsor and most importantly, come join us!

The money we are raising is going for 2 amazing charities -
Hackney Pirates is one of them. They are  working hard to develop the literacy,
confidence and perseverance of young people in Hackney, so that they achieve
both in school and in the world beyond.
