Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson visits Prinovis UK

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson visited Prinovis UK in January. On his visit he toured the plant and had a wide ranging discussion which included the City of Readers initiative – a project to transform Liverpool into the UK’s foremost reading city.

Having previously worked in the area of education welfare Joe is an advocate of literacy development and a big supporter of The Reader (Prinovis UK’s Charity of Choice).  The Reader is also a partner on the City of Readers initiative.

The City of Readers was developed out of Joe Anderson’s pledge to improve education standards and ensure that no child, if able, leaves primary school unable to read.  Joe was keen to hear about Prinovis’s support for the Literacy Business Pledge and our support for the Reader. 

In 2016 Prinovis UK was a founding signatory of the Vision for Literacy Business Pledge; an initiative focused on elevating literacy issues within UK businesses and their local communities, and will continue to run activities in support of the Pledge throughout 2017.
