The Carnegie Youth Theatre did a show to raise funds for their next big production. We were pleased to help them out with their fund raising show back in September. Tickets to their production of Legally Blonde in March are now available!
Five years ago Pamis Fife recognised families who care for someone with PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities) and individuals with PMLD are at serious risk from social isolation and further mental health problems. Working with families, PAMIS established a Friendship Club for families to attend. The Club is run once a month and more frequently during the summer holidays. The Friendship Club provides an opportunity for carers to meet new people while offering sensory story telling and art work for people with PMLD to enjoy. Since 2014 the club has gone from strength to strength and has helped over different 50 families and individuals with PMLD. Many families are regulars to the Club and many friendships have been developed, in 2018 the attendance for the combined Friendship Clubs reached over 300 people. We were pleased to help them celebrate their 5th Birthday.

Delighted to see 10 year old Chris in his new Sports Wheelchair that we helped fund alongside The Lord’s Taverners. We hope you enjoy PE in school and the sporting independence that comes with your new wheelchair Chris
Prior to our launch in Summer 2018, we committed to giving away £1,000 a month to local causes.
We are delighted with the response the Foundation has received and our average monthly donations since launch are well over £2,000!
We love being able to help our local communities, so please help us by continuing to spread the word to whoever you think could benefit.
Applications can be made through the Stephens Foundation website: https://stephensbakeryfoundation.org/apply-for-donation/
We supplied Dunfermline High School with some new equipment to help encourage teenagers to take part in regular sport and exercise after school, and increase the activities they can offer to pupils. They currently have over 100 dancers and gymnasts in clubs and this new equipment aims to keep them motivated to attend each week. The clubs the school offers are free of charge for pupils and run by the kindness of teachers who put in their time to improve pupils fitness levels and skills. All the best to the teachers and pupils in their activities!
Auchmuty & Dovecot Tenants & Residents Association is a non profit community organisation that supports the local community by helping with housing problems, benefits, foodbank supplies, supporting the youths, children’s clothing bank and general support when needed. The Stephens Foundation bought them a fridge so they can store fresh food items for their Foodbank.
Keep up the great work guys!
Great to see photos from Rimbleton Primary School and Nursery of their new Waterfall Activity Centre that we donated. They also got a new Mud Pie Kitchen. We hope the kids have an enjoyable and creative time with their new kit!
Delighted to have donated to Armadale Academy so that they can purchase new books for their school library.
“Our goal is to improve the literacy of our most disadvantaged pupils and to motivate disengaged students into reading for pleasure in order for them to learn, progress and achieve. Also to encourage all our pupils into reading and studying literature to improve their future prospects.”
Now that the school year has started again, we are keen to encourage more schools to apply for Breakfast Club Support!
We now fund 16 breakfast clubs across Fife, and would like to add more 🙂
Do you know of any Primary or Secondary Schools that need support in running an existing Breakfast Club or looking at setting up a new one?
Please encourage them to apply online at www.stephensbakeryfoundation.org/breakfast-club-applicatio…/
