Autumn Term Charity Day
Here at Angel Solutions we like to make a difference, whether that’s by improving the effectiveness of educational organisations, by building innovative time-saving software or by giving to charity in varied and creative ways.
That’s why, for the second time this year, we released our staff for a whole day to donate themselves to charity! Click an image to see what each team got up to…
The Reader Organisation
The Reader Organisation runs shared reading groups in community environments, encouraging social interaction through reading as a shared experience. A fantastic charity, The Reader exists to foster a love of reading and storytelling and to combat social isolation. Based in Calderstones park, The Reader Organisation is currently renovating the mansion house in the centre of the park and converting another building into a Story Barn for children.
We sent Phil, Nat, Liam, Tim and John P to lend a hand by decorating one of the many rooms in the mansion house so the charity can start using it for their work.
Greenbank College offers supportive, inclusive learning opportunities for young people and adults from its accessible building in South Liverpool. The College offers courses for approximately five hundred students per year. Classes are small, friendly and encouraging to help students achieve their potential.
Their mission statement is: “To enhance the opportunities and status of people with disabilities through education, training, employment, transport, sport and recreation.”
The First Aid Room in the college is a very important space where students come in a time of need, so we sent Susan, Adam, John W and Amy along to spruce it up.
“We wanted to make the first aid room a nice and calming place for our students to use. Also it needed to be functional, with washable walls. The team from Angel did a great paint job and I really like the colour!”Elizabeth Brocklehurst
