THE Albion Foundation's Education Department will go in to the next academic year full steam ahead, thanks to a sposorship deal with West Midlands Railway.
The train operator will be partnering Albion's charity arm, with a particular focus on the Foundation's Education Department.
The partnership will include delivering rail safety workshops in local primary schools and rebranding a classroom at the Foundation's school site, as well as working together to provide disability awareness days for railway staff.
The Foundation's Head of Education, Anna Pincher, is very appreciative of the support from the train company.
"We are really grateful for the support from West Midlands Railway," she said.
"The support that they offer us is really important as it allows our team to continue to deliver high quality provision to local children.
"We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with West Midlands Railway as a Foundation, and would like to thank them for specifically choosing to support our Education Department."
Brenda Lawrence, Head of Stations for West Midlands Railway, says that they are dedicated to supporting the local community, with the Foundation's mission fitting into that well.
"We are really looking forward to working with The Albion Foundation," she said.
"The charity has a significant impact on the lives of local children and education is such a crucial part of this.
"We are excited about the opportunities this partnership will bring in building important relationships between our staff and the communities we serve.”
