Classroom sponsorship – another update!

It is now September 2016. Back in May, we started searching for sponsors for the classrooms at Penyem Daycare and Nursery School. Without sponsorship, the school faced closure in 2017, when NTF funding ran out. The previous post explains this in more detail.



We are delighted to announce that we have achieved our target of finding sponsorship for all 7 classrooms. The final piece of the jigsaw was completed last week with the offer of sponsorship from out old friends at Corby Phoenix Rotary Club. So we will have: The Macfarlane Classroom, The Pyke Classroom, The Jill and Bryan Allbut Classroom, The Tricia Crighton Classroom. The Wilson Browne Solicitors Classroom, The Swift/Leese/Holt/Clasby Classroom. The Corby Phoenix Rotary Club Classroom.

The total pledged by these 7 sponsors is £3500 per annum. The total cost of running the school is £7000. NTF will fund the other £3500. However, this is still a drain on our financial resources. Ideally, we would like the school to be fully funded by donations so that NTF’s resources can be directed to developing other projects, particularly the Health Education Programme, which has been suspended due to the funding issues at the school.

There is an 8th classroom that is being developed. This is The ChelseaDSC_0230 Macfarlane and Eleanor Springham Classroom. This classroom needs furniture, blackboard and a TEACHER! Once finished we aim to be able to split the Toddler Class into two halves. I think you will agree that the current class of 83 is too large!

There are also other rooms that can be sponsored such as the School Kitchen, Staff room, Sponsor Relations Office, toilets etc. So we will continue to search for sponsors who will reduce NTF’s outlay of £3500. Please get in touch if you can help!
