Smiths are delighted to announce that our new chosen charity for 2020 will be St. Rose’s School in Stroud. This wonderful school provide education, therapy and day and residential care for children and students aged 2 to 25, with a wide range of disabilities.
We have enjoyed a fantastic relationship over the last 4 years with The James Hopkins Trust, raising in the region of £25,000. This money has been spent directly on providing vital care and facilities to children with life threatening or life limiting conditions in Gloucestershire. Smiths will continue to support the James Hopkins Trust where possible and maintain the excellent relationship built with all the team and JHT.
However, the company will now focus its fundraising and sponsorship efforts on St. Rose’s who aim to provide a broad curriculum that offers stimulating opportunities appropriate to the needs of their students. A team of experienced therapists are employed directly by the school to work alongside education and care staff. St Rose’s aim to ensure that the children at the school have the best chance of progressing and achieving their goals.
We would like to thank all staff and their family and friends who have continued to support our charities.
