On the final day of gbp's 15 days of Christmas giving, over 70 new books have been donated for the library at Catshill Middle School. Jamie Phillipson, gbp Financial Controller (pictured below) nominated the School for the donation. He commented:
"My fiancée works at the school as a humanities teacher, and has told me how much reading add values to the students learning progress and wellbeing. The new books for the school library, funded by the gbp foundation, will enable more children to explore a wider range of subjects and interests, sparking their imagination and supporting their personal growth."
Thank you for your nomination Jamie, we hope the children enjoy the books.
