In keeping with their commitment to support local charities and causes, December saw Keepme deliver a little early Christmas cheer to the pupils & staff of Riverside School.
The school with sites in both St.Paul’s Cray and Beckenham caters for over 230 pupils with severe learning difficulties, many on the autistic spectrum. Alongside supplying fully branded outfits for the pupils involved in it’s popular Riverside Dance Company, staff at Keepme headquarters in closeby Greenhithe held a pre-Xmas raffle to raise much needed funds for the school’s ongoing activities not covered by traditional educational funding channels.
As Keepme’s commercial director Steve Anderson comments:
“Every year we look for a local charity that could benefit from our support. The staff at Riverside School are well known to us and we are delighted to be able to help them continue the great work they do for their pupils.
They go to great lengths to provide extra-curricular activities to engage with the kids in their care; much of which requires funding not readily available to them.”
The pre-Xmas raffle raised close to £100 for the school, and members of the Keepme team are due to meet with Riverside’s business manager following the festive break to lay out a range of initiatives that the company can run to generate funds for the Riverside School Charity Fund (No 1121363).
In response to the Keepme team’s efforts, Riverside School’s business manager Sue Crane said:
“We are delighted at the generous support provided by Keepme to enhance activities enabling our pupils to be all that they can be, we are very grateful to all involved and looking forward to working together in 2016.”
Keepme have a strong commitment to working with local, national & International charitable organisations as part of their ongoing corporate responsibility.
