DISADVANTAGED women in Rugby will get more help to further their career opportunities thanks to a charity donation.
Futures for Women, which provides interest-free loans to women to fund further education and training to encourage their economic independence, has received a donation of £1,000 from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Rugby.
The donation will go towards course fees and equipment costs for women undertaking further education courses at Rugby College.
Rosie Parr from Futures for Women said: “We rely on such donations to support disadvantaged women across Rugby in the pursuit of their dream career. I would urge any women in need of educational or career support to reach out – we are here to help.”
Senatha Selvarajah, who works at Amazon Rugby, nominated the charity for the donation. She said: “Futures for Women is a brilliant charity that does fantastic things for women in our community.”
Site Leader David Hall added: “Futures for Women is a fantastic charity that supports women in Rugby to overcome economic barriers and pursue further education and career paths. We are pleased to support the charity with this donation, and hope it raises awareness of its services.”
