New equipment for special school after firms run
A Stourbridge based design and print company have presented £430 to Sunfield School to help purchase new specialised items of equipment, for the school’s children and young people with complex needs, including autism.
Swinford Graphics employees took to the streets of Halesowen in September in the Halesowen and Rowley Regis Rotary Club’s, Black Country Run, as part of the Sunfield charity’s running team, with the firm encouraging its business contacts, family and friends to join in too.
Through sponsorship they raised the vital donations for Sunfield’s ‘Enhanced Learning and Therapy Support Appeal’, launched this year.
Swinford Graphic’s contribution, along with other funds from the appeal, will buy new resources for the school’s sensory room, sports and computer equipment and musical instruments.
Georgina Forrest, Sunfield’s Partnership Development Manager said, “We have worked with Swinford for many years and we are delighted that they have managed to raise so much to help buy items such as the ones we need in the sensory room, which will make such a difference to the students we support. As a charity, fundraising and community support is vital to us as it enables us to purchase the many things not covered by Government funding.”
Phil Fellows of Swinford Graphics said, “Sunfield does such fantastic work helping children with special needs and we find any opportunity we can to help raise money for them and we encourage others to do so too, on an ongoing basis.”
