• Pinnacle sponsors Welsh special school with HP

        • Pinnacle Document Solutions Group, in partnership with HP, recently sponsored Ysgol Ty Coch, a special school in Pontypridd, Wales, committed to celebrating difference and diversity rather than defining pupils by their disability.

          The Governing Body of the school, led by Head Teacher David Jenkins and chair of governors Janice Stuckey, developed a business strategy aimed at overcoming some of the challenges many schools and their wider communities face as a result of increasing financial pressures. A key component of this strategy involves companies sponsoring an individual class in exchange for a small annual donation.

          David Jenkins, Head Teacher said, “for some time, the school has been trying to engage more effectively with commercial businesses. However, this proved to be quite difficult at the start. The people at Pinnacle immediately understood our school, understood our pupils and understood our amazing staff. They immediately committed to entering into a sponsorship agreement and brought HP along for the journey also. 

          “From there, Pinnacle arranged a corporate Golf Day and Masquerade Ball and named Ysgol Ty Coch and its annual charity 2 Wish Upon a Star as beneficiaries. This is something the school did not anticipate and the money raised will go towards helping us build a brand new sensory, immersive environment for our pupils.

          “We are very excited to see how the relationship with Pinnacle develops over the next few years. We’ve been overwhelmed by their generosity and ethos which I know will enrich the education and lives of our exceptional young pupils.”

          Ryan Walker from HP said, “for me personally the appeal came because of the passion and enthusiasm of Clive from the Pinnacle Group, following a visit to Ysgol Ty Coch School. He explained passionately to me about the challenges the children and staff face on day to day basis, the obstacles they overcome and the recognition and rewards as end results.”

          Clive Hamilton, Pinnacle Group Managing Director added, “for many years we have regularly been involved in supporting an array of different charities as commitment to our community responsibility. That said, all the charities we support are important to us but immediately on seeing the drive, dedication and commitment from both 2 Wish Upon a Star and in particular the staff at Ysgol Ty Coch led by David Jenkins, struck a chord, not just on a business level but also on a personal level and I would actively encourage any business to get involved with two such wonderful causes. Pinnacle is proud to be part of such a deserving initiative and look forward to supporting both 2 Wish Upon a Star and Ysgol Ty Coch in our upcoming events later on in the year.”
