Students at Archers Brook SEMH Residential School Charitable Trust in Ellesmere Port were delighted to receive a £3,000 donation from Essar at Stanlow recently as a result of the refinery achieving a record breaking safety target of three million hours without a recordable injury – a first in the site’s 60 year history.
Essar’s Let’s Give programme, which links safety milestones and charitable giving, recognised this significant achievement by donating to three charities: STEPS, Archers Brook, and The Liverpool Seafarers Centre.
The school community offers quality support for children and young people with a range of complex social, emotional and behavioural difficulties often linked with medical conditions such as ADHD or complex communication needs associated with ASD.
June Sedgwick, business manager at Archers Brook commented: “The trustees, staff and pupils of Archers Brook are very grateful to Essar for this wonderful donation. Each week different classes have a personal and social development trip to build their confidence, form friendships and help develop many life skills. This money will be used to help equip these trips, by purchasing mountain bikes for the newly formed group of key stage two pupils, as well as much needed outdoor education clothing for the entire age range of students.”
