Bury College is brilliant at supplying apprentices to timeware® (UK) Ltd. Over the past four years, we have employed six people that were sourced by the college and we have plans to take on another four over the next two years. Steve McMillan and his team from Bury College do a wonderful job and so when timeware® found out about the B-Fest event in June last year, it was decided that one good turn deserves another.
timeware® sponsored the New Horizons fundraiser to the tune of £1,300 assisting the department to organise an event for students with learning difficulties to travel to Blackpool on an exciting residential.
The residential was a great success, 8 students and 8 staff members had a fantastic time.
B-Fest 2017 must be ‘Bigger and Better’ than last year, said Adam Grundy New Horizons tutor and BFEST Organiser. And what a great event it was, with over 10 stalls, great bands and temperature’s reaching over 30°. A phenomenal amount of effort had been made by the team to ensure all of the students had a great time and its true when they say that the achievements of an organisation are the results of the combined effort of each individual. The plans for next year’s residential have to be based on the specialist needs of each student. With this thought in mind, timeware® offered to double their sponsorship to £2600 helping a truly wonderful cause.
