More Than Money
A donation or support from a business as part of their corporate social responsibility initiatives is more than just financial support. It’s a direct sponsor of child education that gives children opportunities they otherwise wouldn’t have had in a secure, diverse and exciting environment.
As a voluntary organisation, our resources are sometimes limited and the focus of our staff is almost always on their direct work with the families and children in our communities. There are often things we would love to improve in our nurseries, or opportunities and activities we wish we could operate, but simply don’t have ability to support.
This is why our sponsors are so important to us. Through their corporate social responsibility initiatives, they have allowed us to progress the Derwent Stepping Stones nurseries to new heights and let the children in our care participate in activities and new experiences that they otherwise would never have had the opportunity to. From rolling their sleeves up to do jobs in the garden, to providing professional services that we simply could not afford to buy in, we feel so lucky to have had such strong support from local people and businesses.
