Cooper Associates Foundation is enabling PROMISEworks to find, train and support 6 local volunteers to mentor 6 of the 47 children and young people currently in need of PROMISEworks’ support in the Taunton area.
Tom Abell, Trustee of Cooper Associates Foundation and Somerset cricketer presented the cheque for £12,000 to PROMISEworks Chair Robert Peto and PROMISEworks Taunton Case Holder Christell Charles.
Robert said “PROMISEworks is excited to receive this generous donation from Cooper Associates Foundation which will allow us to help 6 more young people over a minimum 2-year period to build a life that works for each of them”.
Victoria Tremear, Trustee of The Cooper Associates Foundation, said: “The Cooper Associates Foundation is delighted to be able to support PROMISEworks with a donation of £12,000. PROMISEworks is doing amazing work within our local communities, providing essential support to vulnerable young people through one-to-one mentoring. We are thrilled that our donation will be used to train the ‘Cooper’s Cohort’ of six mentors, so they are equipped to support the young people they are working with.”
In addition to this Cooper Associates staff are coming forward to apply to be mentors, another fantastic way to show their support for the young people of West Somerset.
