The grant application was submitted by Sarah Hankin, Supervisor at Pavers in Newry.

Sarah applied for the grant funding for the school which her nephew attends, which caters for children with additional needs and learning difficulties.



“Without Rathore, many children and young people would not have the opportunities they get here, a fantastic organisation that comes together to enrich the lives of others, that we should all be thankful for,” Sarah explains.

“I chose this charity as I have family members who attend Rathore and continue to thrive and grow each and every day.

She adds, “The love, friendship, education and support these children, young people and their families receive is outstanding!”

Rathore school thanked the Foundation for its contribution towards the minibus fundraiser.

Once purchased, the vehicle will afford the school many more opportunities to explore the local community with the children.

“The £1,000 donation will help us immensely towards our goal for a specially adapted minibus for Rathore School,” the school says.

“It’ll enable us to take the children swimming, parks, grocery shopping to develop their life skills and engage more in the community and raise awareness of special needs.



“Thank you, Pavers Foundation, on behalf of the 235 children in Rathore school Newry and especially from Rathore Parents & Friends Association.”

The Pavers Foundation is proud to recognise the charitable fundraising efforts of the Rathore Parents and Friends Association by matching this fundraising, and continues to make a difference to charities and causes close to the hearts of their 1600 colleagues in areas of health, education and community through their charitable donations.
