Learners at Hereward College will benefit from additional trips to support their education thanks to a £2000 grant from the Heart of England Community Foundation’s Torrington Fund.
The grant was awarded to the college’s charitable arm, Friends of Hereward which plays a crucial role in fundraising for additional resources and activities not covered by statutory funds.
Hereward is a college for young people with disabilities and additional needs and the extra funding will go towards all-round cultural and learning experiences for the learners in areas they wouldn’t normally be able to access.
Rachael Bermingham, Trustee for Friends of Hereward says:
“Hereward’s aim is to ensure the young people that come to college leave with the life skills and independence to realise their potential.
“This grant means they can provide appropriate and wheelchair-enabled transport and continue to offer learners the first class opportunities, experiences and activities they need to make their way in the world.”
