We’re delighted to announce our new charity partnership with Paces and have kicked off our support with the sponsorship of their new Adult Life Skills room. The room is part of the new £3.6m state of the art facilities being built at the Advanced Manufacturing Park next to the Sheffield Parkway which will provide help to adults and their families across Yorkshire.
Paces is a specialist centre, school and charity that supports children and adults living with neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, strokes, MS, Parkinson’s, and brain injury. They teach children life-changing skills such as sitting, standing, walking, speaking, communication and self-care in an environment they can have fun, develop friendships, and feel like they belong.
Their adult programme supports those living with the effects of a stroke, MS, Parkinson’s, and brain injury which reteaches the skills lost due to their illness.
Paces is close to the heart of our MD Linda Spencer because of her sons learning difficulties, and how facilities like this has helped him over the years.
Linda comments “We’re thrilled to sponsor the Adult Life Skills room which will provide individually designed support for adults to help them learn daily living skills such as food planning and cooking. Paces is personally important to me as my son who has learning difficulties can live independently because of organisations like it. Our team are looking forward to getting involved with other fundraising activities to help our new charity partner achieve their target to build their school and centre”.
Julie Booth, Head of Fundraising comments “We are incredibly grateful and extremely excited to welcome Professional Energy Purchasing as a Charity Partner. Linda and the team know how important the support we offer is and the difference it makes to the lives of the families who use our services. They are an incredibly generous team and we are all looking forward to working with them as we move forward towards our new home”.
