The school purchased an oscilloscope and a power signal generator for use in science classes and experiments. Oakbank science teacher, Simon Combstock, said: “The donation has enabled the science department to purchase these pieces of equipment that we would otherwise not normally have in the school. This will really enhance the teaching of science lessons and assist the students with understanding this module of the curriculum.”
As an organisation which is at the forefront of excellence in science and technology, inspiring the scientists of the future is very important to us.
The Camrose Centre is a drop-in service dedicated to providing support and assistance to the homeless, vulnerably housed and socially isolated in Basingstoke and Deane. It offers clients breakfast and a hot lunch in a safe welcoming environment, with basic washing facilities, and a variety of essential items for our rough sleeping community, including toiletries and towels, clothes and shoes, and rucksacks, tents and sleeping bags.
AWE Chairty Fund gave a £5,000 donation which will make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable people in Basingstoke.
Stephen Morgan, BVA’s chief executive, said: “AWE’s generous donation to the Camrose Centre is absolutely fantastic. It strengthens the positive relationship that Basingstoke Voluntary Action and AWE have been developing over the years to support local groups and charities.
Safety Arm bands
AWE sponsored the extra-bright LED flashing armbands, which the excited youngsters were delighted to receive. Tony Darroch, an AWE environment, safety and health manager, was invited to speak at Kingsclere Primary School in a special assembly about road safety and the children took part in a quiz to highlight safety messages.
The school participates in the Junior Road Safety Officer Scheme, which is supported by Hampshire County Council. AWE takes road safety very seriously and run training for staff including sessions for our apprentices, as well as showing road safety videos.
