Here at kinex, we are invested in supporting communities by regularly granting financial awards to those groups making a real difference in their local area. Most recently, we’ve been involved in fantastic initiatives from Little Eagles, West Sussex Mediation Service and The Message Enterprise Centre located just around the corner from kinex HQ.
This month we were able to show our support for our local area once again, this time for the ‘Friends of Northenden Community School’ Parent-Teacher Association. The Friends carry out activities on behalf of the school with the aim of raising additional funds, which are then used to enhance the children’s experience and provide curriculum enrichment. Past fundraising has seen the Friends improve the Community School playground, fund visits from theatre groups and upgrade the equipment used for school productions.
This year, the Friends are fundraising to support the school in refurbishing its ICT Suite and upgrading the computers which are used by all pupils at the school.
Playing a large part in raising those vital funds is the annual Summer Fair, run by the Friends, which took place on Saturday 16th June and featured a fun-filled range of activities for children and adults alike. kinex pledged to match the funding of the games activities and were proud to present £400 to the school in their final assembly of the year on Friday 6th July.
On the donation, Headteacher Mr Ian Beard commented:
‘We are very grateful to kinex for their generous support in providing matched funding for our Summer Fair activities. It is wonderful to have the support of a local company and their employees, and for them to recognise the hard work of our Parent-Teacher Association and the needs of the school in this way. Thank you, kinex, from everyone at Northenden Community school.’
It was a pleasure to be able to support the great work of the Friends of Northenden Community School and kinex wish them the best of luck for their future fundraising.
