The Rex Supports St Catherine's
The Rex Bar and Restaurant in Ventnor donated £850 to St Catherine’s, after staff saved up their tips throughout the year.
A cheque was presented to St Catherine’s on Friday 18 December during the school’s end-of-term assembly where students were rewarded for their sporting, personal development and learning achievements.
The donation will support St Catherine’s vocational training programme, The Worx. The Worx works with young people from St Catherine’s, from special needs units within mainstream schools on the Island and from other voluntary organisations and provides a range of vocational training modules that look to bridge the gap between school and college, further training or employment.
As Kim Fry, Community Fundraiser, explained “It is fantastic of Jo and Abdul at the Rex to support our children and young people in this way. The Rex is a great favourite with our staff and families. We cannot thank them enough for their generosity.”
