Five Acre Wood School. is an outstanding all age (2-19) day District Special School for children and young people with profound, severe and complex learning difficulties. The donation from Brachers will go towards the school’s current capital campaign ‘Create a ripple…MAKE A SPLASH!’ which will raise £250,000 towards the cost of a new hydrotherapy pool over the next two years.
Staff at Brachers raised funds by dedicating their time to organising and taking part in various activities across the firm’s fundraising calendar; from quiz nights and bingo to a staff car wash, fantasy football league and various cake sales and raffles.
Brachers will continue to raise funds for the school over the next financial year. The firm is committed to investing in the local communities it works with and has already raised over £16,500 for local charities in the past five years.
Alexandra Meaders, Fundraiser at Five Acre Wood School, said:
“The children and staff are so thrilled to have the support of Brachers. The cheque for £5,300 is an amazing contribution towards the total sum required to fund a much needed new hydrotherapy pool. Brachers is a true community company and we look forward to working with them at various events throughout the year”.
Joanna Worby, Managing Partner at Brachers said:
“Five Acre Wood is a wonderful school that makes a huge difference to many children’s lives. As a firm we are committed to supporting good causes in the local community and we are delighted to be able to support the school in improving their facilities. We are looking forward to working with them over the next 12 months and continuing to raise much needed funds that will help the school continue to expand the fantastic care and support they provide to their children”.
