Local Estate Agent firm Lex Allan and Grove have chosen Sunfield School as their charity partner for 2015/16.
Staff from both the Halesowen and Stourbridge offices will join forces to raise funds and awareness for the school.
Dean Grove, Director of the Halesowen office, spent some time in a couple of classrooms to meet and to get an understanding of the boys and girls living and learning at Sunfield, who have complex learning and behavioural needs, including autism.
Dean said, “It was a privilege to see the work the staff and carers do at Sunfield and re-confirmed the importance of our partnership to raise as much funds as possible for this fantastic charity.”
Both offices are busy planning a calendar of fundraising activities including; skittles nights, cycle rides, cake sales as well as raising funds through their customer feedback ‘WOW’ cards, where for every completed form £10 will be donated to the charity.
Georgina Forrest, Sunfield Partnership Development Manager said; “We are absolutely delighted to have the support of Lex Allan & Grove as a neighboring business. We look forward to welcoming them as part of our community and thank them for their long-term commitment, which will enable us to purchase the many things that enhance our students’ lives but that are not covered by Government funding.”
Having raised almost £10,000 for their previous charity partner, Clic Sargent, the company directors hope to raise the same, if not more for the school.
