This week Morrisons Verwood Store Community Champion Jenny Cook was pleased to present a £10,000 donation from the Morrisons Foundation to The Sheiling Ringwood.
Corine van Barneveld, Principal said: ‘’We are immensely grateful to the Morrisons Foundation for this generous donation which will be used to fund the purchase of a vehicle for The Sheiling Ringwood. This fulfills an essential transport requirement for our young people to take part in offsite visits for work experience and medical appointments. In addition, as part of their lessons and life skills, students travel off site for a variety of activities including horse riding, swimming, hiking, and visiting museums. As many of our students are also resident here, they take part in various leisure activities such as going to the zoo, the cinema, and the beach and this donation with greatly help enhance the quality of our students’ lives’’.
The Morrisons Foundation was established in 2015 to provide financial support to registered charities operating in communities across the UK.
David Scott, Trustee of the Morrisons Foundation, said: "The Morrisons Foundation provides support to charities making a difference to people in local communities. This donation will help The Sheiling Ringwood deliver important services in the local area.”
