'Back to School' Charity Day raises £2,473

(Tue, Dec 18, 2018)

We were delighted to raise funds to support our local community in November and recently donated £2,473 to Pinewood School, a state special school in Ware for children aged 11 to 16.

Purchase Direct hold a charity day twice a year in support of a worthy charity and, most recently, Libby Barrow and Rob Lenane from our Account Management Team nominated Pinewood School. We held a number of events during our ‘Back to School’ fundraising day in the Purchase Direct office, which included a number of staff participating in ‘Sports Day’, plus various fun competitions and a raffle.

Purchase Direct staff presented a cheque for £2,473.40 to Pinewood School at a recent festive assembly. Headteacher David McGachen commented, “Thank you to the team at Purchase Direct for their generous support. Pinewood School are very fortunate to have received a substantial charity donation and we intend to use the money raised to contribute to an interactive electronic learning device.”
