Specialist school is chosen as Keepme’s local charity for 2016

Keepme delivered a little early Christmas cheer to the pupils and staff of Riverside School, by providing pupils involved in its popular Riverside Dance Company with fully branded outfits.

The school, with sites in both St Paul’s Cray and Beckenham in the London borough of Bromley, caters for over 230 pupils with severe learning difficulties, many on the autistic spectrum.

Keepme, which is based in nearby Greenhithe, also held a pre-Christmas raffle to raise much needed funds for the school’s ongoing activities not covered by traditional educational channels.

Steve Anderson, Keepme’s commercial director, said: “Every year we look for a local charity that could benefit from our support. The staff at Riverside School are well known to us and we are delighted to be able to help them continue the great work they do for their pupils.

“They go to great lengths to provide extra-curricular activities to engage with the kids in their care; much of which requires funding not readily available to them.”

The raffle raised close to £100 for the school, and members of the Keepme team are due to meet with Riverside’s business manager following the festive break to lay out a range of initiatives that the company can run to generate funds for the Riverside School Charity Fund.

Riverside School’s business manager Sue Crane said: “We are delighted at the generous support provided by Keepme to enhance activities enabling our pupils to be all that they can be, we are very grateful to all involved and looking forward to working together in 2016.”

Keepme has a strong commitment to working with local, national and international charitable organisations as part of its ongoing corporate responsibility.
