Sidekick sponsors a magical storytelling workshop

At Sidekick, we understand the magical power of writing and storytelling better than most. That’s why we’re so excited to have made a storymaking session for up to 30 schoolchildren possible, by supporting the wonderful Grimm & Co’s recent fundraising campaign.

The Rotherham-based literacy charity, which Sidekick PR’s own Charlotte Dimond is a Trustee of, provides writing workshops to children and young people with the aim of ‘unleashing imaginations through the joyful discovery of stories’.

And, when we heard about Grimm & Co’s fundraising campaign to open a new Emporium of Stories venue in Rotherham this year, we knew we had to get involved.

We’re proud to have sponsored a Storymaking Workshop through the charity, meaning the team can invite a class from a school that may not have the funds to do so themselves, in to take part in their very own workshop.

Pupils will then create the beginning and the middle of a story together, while an illustrator brings their characters to life in real-time. Each child then writes their own individual endings to the tale, ready to be published in their very own book.

Louise Treloar of Grimm & Co, said: We are so thrilled that Sidekick PR has sponsored a Storymaking session here at the Emporium of Stories.  We recognise that some schools are finding times difficult at the moment, and it means such a lot for a local company to sponsor a school in this way.  We can't wait to see what exciting creations the young people come up with!"
