Ruskin Mill Trust, a local charity based in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire has received a donation of £1745 from the Charitable Trust of leading law firm, Harrison Clark Rickerbys. The funding support will contribute towards garden tools to serve young adults who have complex learning and behavioural challenges.
Ruskin Mill College is part of the Ruskin Mill Trust. The college helps young adults with learning and behavioural difficulties to realise a future. Ruskin Mill College utilises a unique curriculum based on practical skills and therapeutic education which is delivered through craftwork such as Iron Age forge and greenwood working, as well as arts and land based agricultural and woodland management. The students are earning BTEC and other qualifications through the work.
The donation from Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ Charitable Trust has enabled the college to purchase a Stihl grass-trimmer/brush cutter clearing saws as well as a professional grade lawnmower for their workshop.
Patricia Russell, Fundraiser at Ruskin Mill Trust said; “This donation is such a great help to us
and it provides such a wonderful opportunity for the organisation and the students we serve at Ruskin Mill College. We would like to thank Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ Charitable Trust for their support and kindness, it’s made a huge difference.”
Mathew Waddington, Partner at Harrison Clark Rickerbys and Trustee of Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ Charitable Trust, commented; “We were delighted to make a donation to Ruskin Mill Trust. I visited Ruskin Mill Trust in Nailsworth and met some of the students. The students suffer from behavioural and some cases cognitive dysfunction; some of the children are severely autistic whilst others have attachment disorders. The education they receive from this charity is so valuable and it is an extremely worthwhile cause. With one of our offices based in Cheltenham we are always keen to support such fantastic initiatives within the Gloucestershire community.”
