Fusion Contact Center Supports Local Library

23rd January 2013

Fusion donates to Highfield Community School

Fusion (part of the BGL Group), has officially opened the Highfield Community library following its continued support of the school.

The contact center has donated 20,000 to the schools' reading programme which has resulted in investment in hundreds of books as well as attracting reading mentors and story tellers.

Fusion has also taken part in the 'Right to Read' programme where employees volunteer time to help local children to improve their literacy.

Simon Marshall, Headmaster at Highfield Community School, said:

"We are grateful for Fusion's continued support of our reading schemes. The partnership has been a great success, with over 100 children already benefiting from the programmes. The many volunteering hours provided by Fusion employees have been invaluable to our pupils' improved reading skills. The schemes are giving the children a great foundation to develop their education and fulfill their potential."

Tony Barrett, Contact Center Manager at Fusion, added:

"We are proud to support Highfield School and in turn our local community. It gives us the opportunity to 'give something back' to the next generation and use our skills to help children build their confidence when reading. We are looking forward to helping even more young lives in the future and hope our support will make a real difference."

The school is also appealing for any good quality children's books to be donated. So if you can help please contact Highfield Community Primary School directly in the UK on 0191 553 7655.
