President Trevor Brown of the Rotary Club of Towcester was delighted to present Pam Jennings of Coram Life Education Northamptonshire with a cheque for £500 which is half of the money raised personally by Rotarian Alex Cooke following his fascinating and inspiring bike ride across southern India in January of 2017.
Coram Life Education (CLE) is the UK’s leading provider of high quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education and works to support 675,000 children nationally.
CLE educators deliver PSHE education sessions in 2,500 UK primary and secondary schools. As well as helping children make positive choices, teachers say that attending the sessions helps them feel more confident about delivering PSHE activities to children themselves. All of the programmes are comprehensively aligned to the National Curriculum and new Ofsted requirements.
CLE is celebrating 25 years of helping more than five million children to make positive choices.
The other £500 that Alex raised was donated to the charity ProVision Asia – based in Bangalore. The mission of ProVision is as follows:
“Many people who struggle with physical or mental disabilities have hope; life can be fruitful and have purpose. ProVision Asia serves these friends by offering a hand up, not a hand out. We encourage them to recognize and utilize their own abilities; empower them to make a significant contribution to society. We become a bridge between people with disabilities and community resources, specifically serving those in Bangalore and surrounding villages in South India.
OUR MISSION is to inspire hope among people with disabilities by providing an environment which fosters transformation. We encourage the vision of abundant life through practical life-skills training; provision of mobility aids, physiotherapy, job placements, education sponsorships, computer training; counselling and government advocacy.”
