KC extends partnership with The Deep

KC has renewed its sponsorship of The Deep’s Learning Centre for another three years. As part of the partnership KC has donated 22 new laptops to the Learning Centre, the first equipment upgrade that has taken place since The Deep opened 10 years ago.

As well as providing new laptops, KC is also sponsoring Discovery Corner, a popular interactive zone for visitors young and old, and the Business Centre, which provides office and laboratory space for small to medium sized businesses.

Susan Hornby, our Head of Education at The Deep: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with KC, and would like to thank them for sponsoring Discovery Corner and the Business Centre as well as helping us to provide fantastic IT services in our Learning Centre Their support in providing top class education facilities for young people in Hull is a testament to their commitment to the community.

“As a charity, we’re extremely grateful for the support of local businesses like KC, and we are looking forward to continuing to work with them.”

Each year more than 30,000 primary and high school pupils use the Learning Centre to enjoy fun and educational workshops, presentations and hands-on activities, which are delivered by qualified teachers. The young people learn a broad range of subjects raising awareness of the marine environment. All sessions are closely referenced to the National Curriculum.

Anna Millar, Community Relations Manager at KC said: “The Deep is one of our region’s success stories and we are proud to be continuing our partnership with them for another two years. The Learning Centre offers young people a unique and inspiring learning experience in first class facilities, which now includes brand new IT equipment that will support their learning further. The Deep has something for everyone, from supporting young people at the Learning Centre to helping businesses develop in the Business Centre. We look forward to working with them and continuing our great partnership.”

And it’s not the young people visiting The Deep that will benefit from the updated equipment. The old PC equipment from the Learning Centre is being donated to charity including the former computer storage units which are being given to children’s charity Barnardos.
