Teachers Building Society was delighted to donate just over £4500 to the Education Support Partnership this year, which included its annual Charity Saver Account donation.
The Education Support Partnership (Ed Support) is the UK's only charity providing mental health and well-being support services to all education staff and organisations.
The donation included funds from the Teachers Building Society Charity Saver – an account which was set up in 2010 to provide a competitive saving rate for savers whilst at the same time providing valuable help to teachers. Interest from the accounts is donated annually to the Ed Support – the equivalent to 0.25% of all the funds invested.
Teachers Building Society also donated funds towards the Partnerships’ AGM and sponsored an annual mailing for the Ed Support to further support the organisation and all the good work it does in the education sector.
Simon Beresford, chief executive for Teachers Building Society, said: “We are proud to make another meaningful donation to the Education Support Partnership. The services offered by the Partnership continue to be invaluable to teachers. As a Building Society founded by teachers for teachers, it’s another important way in which we can support teachers in a world where their well-being is often over looked.”
Sarah Goddard, Fundraising Manager at Education Support Partnership said “Thank you so much to Teacher’s Building Society for their annual donation, and further support sponsoring our mailing. In the last year, need for our services have increased by 40% and it is only with the generous support of partners like you that we can meet that demand. Thank you!”
The Charity Saver is now a closed account but ran from 2010 to 2014. Donations continue to be made every year from the invested funds.
