UNBEELIEVABLE FUN AT THE 1ST ANNUAL LITERACY LONDON ADULT SPELLING BEE!
If you and your friends LOVE words and word games and you have a competitive spirit, you’ll have a great time at this upcoming event. This isn’t the high pressure childhood spelling bee that you sweated over as a kid – this is you and five of your friends collaborating to compete in what promises to BEE a fun-filled evening. There will be big words, small words, words you didn’t even know existed – it all spells a whole lot of FUN at the 1st Annual Literacy London Adult Spelling Bee.
There will also BEE prizes, a delicious dinner, entertainment and a silent auction of tempting items. It all takes place on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, at 6 p.m. at the Goodwill Conference Centre. Join the staff and volunteers of Literacy London as we raise funds that will assist us in our efforts to help adults in our community who have made the pledge to improve their literacy skills. Check out the Events page to find out how you can participate. You’ll want to register EARLY to make sure there is a spot for your team!
On April 26, 2012 Literacy London, in conjunction with a local employment services provider, London Training Centre, celebrated our volunteer tutors. The event was well attended by Literacy London volunteers and board members and London Training Centre staff and board members. The evening was witness to the good collaborative work between the literacy and employment sectors.

The delicious food was prepared, in house, by London Training Centre’s amazing team of Hospitality Services staff. Sherree Mahood, MTCU Western Region Director, addressed those in attendance, stressing the value of adult literacy programs and the impact of literacy on the economy and workforce. She commended the volunteers for making a difference in the lives of so many students and their families.
A special thanks to all of the highly skilled and dedicated Literacy London volunteers and to David Corke, Executive Director of London Training Centre for all that you do, on a daily basis, to make London a stronger, healthier community.
