Helping to support teaching abroad

24/06/2014

Anne Purdon, a curriculum leader based at Norland College in Bath, recently appealed in the local press for donations for school supplies, and we were pleased to help!

In August, Anne and her husband David will be travelling to Korce, Albania, to spend a year working with the charity The Kenedi Foundation. Anne will concentrate her time and skills on teaching the children of fellow aid workers, while David's background in finance will be utilised to help identify cost-effective strategies for the foundation.

We are delighted to be able to support Anne and David by donating stationery items and exercise books along with paints, brushes and paper. Anne says: "We're so grateful to The Consortium for giving such a huge donation of items, all of which will be invaluable in setting up the school."

We would like to wish Anne and David the best of luck for the year ahead.
