School benefits thanks to mom

Birmingham school pupils are celebrating after generous workers at Pertemps People Development Group donated &pound525 to purchase some much needed play equipment.

RednalHill Infant Schoolwas selected for support by employees of Edgbaston-based employment and training experts Pertemps People Development Group (PPDG). The company recently celebrated passing the milestone of &pound150,000 in donations from workers to more than 350 good causes.

The latest donation has enabled the purchase of equipment including five play trucks and a light box after the school was nominated for an award by PPDG central administrator Rachel Torrance whose five-year-old twins Ethan and Joshua go to the school.

She said: “I knew that the school was trying to raise funds to replace the existing play equipment which was old and clearly in need of replacement. As a member of our Payroll Giving scheme I decided to nominate them for support and was thrilled when the company agreed to help. The new play equipment is now in place and I know my children and other pupils in the future will absolutely love it. ”

Headteacher Elaine Le Gros added: “We are elated with the new equipment which is now in daily use. We have used the donation to fund a light table, something we just couldn’t afford and a number of hard wearing trucks to enhance the children’s play.”

PPDG’s Payroll Giving scheme, Give As You Earn, donates thousands of pounds to local charities, schools and other good causes each year and recently celebrated passing donations totaling more than &pound150,000 to over 350 good causes thanks to the contributions made each month by employees.

PPDG’s team of employment experts provides advice on benefits, confidence building, one-to-one support, CV and interview preparation as well as finding the right job or training course. In partnership with DWP, the Ministry of Justice and Jobcentre Plus, PPDG delivers the Government’s Work Programme and many employment and training initiatives part-financed by the European Social Fund. PPDG came fourth in The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2011.
