Donation helps bring Black Country history to life


16 April 2014

We are pleased to confirm that Pertemps, leading employment and training specialist is once again supporting the Black Country Living Museum’s Learning programme with a £500 donation.

Phil Pemble, from Pertemps People Development Group (PPDG), which has centres in West Bromwich, Walsall, Wolverhampton and Dudley, said the museum plays a vital part in preserving the region’s heritage.

“Everyone is fascinated to learn about how their ancestors lived,” said Phil. “In particular, how people were employed and how their personal contributions led to the development of the Black Country. Our business is to help today’s job seekers find work to ensure the region continues to remain one of growth and prosperity.”  

Museum Development Director, Vicki Stanley emphasised the importance of building relationships with local and regional businesses. "We're delighted to extend our partnership with Pertemps People Development Group into a second year. As a registered educational charity, this support will enable us to develop workshops, trails and themed visits for children and young people, including those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to visit the museum"

Pertemps People Development Group previously funded a trip for children from Sandwell Deaf Community Association to enjoy a day out at the museum through its community support programme.
