We are celebrating a new partnership with the Morrisons supermarket in Balby, Doncaster.

Various areas of the Trust have already benefitted from the partnership that has seen £5,000 donated to the Forest School at Little Learners Day Nursery and attendees at the Deaf Social Club were treated to a tasty afternoon tea donated by the store.

Becca Lynch, our fundraiser said: “We are extremely grateful to the team at Morrisons – Balby, for their kind donations.

“The £5,000 for the Forest School was donated before the Covid pandemic hit and it has now been put to good use and we were really pleased to invite the team to come and see for themselves the difference that their donation has made to the area.

“Our Deaf Social Club is a free to attend drop-in session that runs weekly at the Trust and is for anyone who is Deaf and over the age of 16. Guests at a recent session were treated to an afternoon tea and they all thoroughly enjoyed it!

“The team have also commissioned our students, via the Enterprise shop, to make a set of stocks for them to help them with their fundraising.

“It is always wonderful as a local charity for us to be able to develop relationships with local businesses to work together to support our children, pupils and students and we want to say a huge thank you to all the team at Morrisons – Balby.”

The Deaf Social Club is funded by the National Lottery and enables Deaf people from the local community to meet up, socialise and take part in a range of activities.

Jane Hemsworth, Community Champion, Morrisons – Balby, said: “It was fantastic to see what the money from the Morrisons Foundation Grant had been used for and to see how the children loved playing and exploring in the Forest School. What an AMAZING School!”
