Local school benefits from local companies’ office surplus
When two Somerset companies decided they no longer needed all their office furniture, they found the perfect home for the surplus desks and filing cabinets: Shapwick School, near Street.
Shapwick is a CReSTeD category ‘SP’ School which specialises in supporting boys and girls aged from eight to 19 years whose education has been adversely affected by dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.
Both of the companies are based at The Stables Business Park, Rooksbridge, with insurance company NFU Mutual donating six filing cabinets and specialist credit referencing company ICSM contributing three surplus desks.
Says Carol Pilgrim from the NFUM: “Recent legislation means that we no longer need the number of filing cabinets we had, so instead of just getting rid of them we offered them to Shapwick school who snapped up the opportunity. NFUM are only too pleased to support local organisations such as this.
The picture shows Carol at the handover to Will James on behalf of Shapwick School.
Shapwick School employs a team of specialist teachers, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists who deliver to small classes and individuals. It is one of the first specialist schools for children with dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia.
