Green Motion is pleased to announce that we have reached our fundraising target of £10,000 for Friends of Middleton, a charity very close to our hearts.
The funds were collectively raised with contributions from Green Motion branches from around the world along with donations from some of our valued car rental partners.
We managed to raise the substantial sum of money for the charity in just four months!
What is Friends of Middleton?
Based in Ware, Hertfordshire, Middleton School is a primary school for pupils who have moderate learning difficulties, speech and language and communication difficulties and Autism. Middleton School caters for approximately 80 pupils from 4 – 11 years.
The school provides a safe, happy, fun and secure environment in which pupils can learn through their own experiences and develop their individual interests and strengths.
Found less than 20 miles from our Stansted Airport branch, Middleton School has had a particular impact on the owner of the branch. The branch owner has a child at the school, therefore, all of us at Green Motion are aware of the terrific work the school does for its pupils.
What has the contribution been used for?
The funds raised have been used to build and furnish a sensory eco-cabin on the school grounds that gives the children a quiet sensory room to take time out in.
Friends of Middleton hold many events throughout the year to raise money for the school and we hope that our contribution helps in a small way to maintain the fantastic ongoing support for the children.
Donna Jolly, Headteacher at Middleton School, said: “On behalf of all of the children at Middleton School we would like to thank you so very much for the most generous donations. At a time when school budgets are so tight and when our school is so full it is a perfect gift which will benefit so many children."
