It’s ‘Back To School’ time at Ryman, and we have come up with something different to support this year’s campaign.
As you know Teachers have a huge influence on our, and our children’s lives, shaping behaviours, helping us find our passions and developing us into the best we can be. We also recognise that being a teacher is a tough job, not least at the moment because of the budget constraints many schools are under. A recent study suggested that nearly 50% of teachers have purchased classroom essentials such as stationery in the last 12 months, with many of them spending over £500 a year from their personal own salary.
The Ryman ‘Vouchers for Classrooms’ initiative is our way of recognising and celebrating the valuable work that teachers do and giving a little back to help schools and teachers to continue inspiring the next generation
The ‘Vouchers for Classrooms’ scheme is really simple. Between now and 21st September, any customer who spends £5 or more in a Ryman store will get a voucher valued at 50p. For every £5 they spend a 50p voucher is earned. So if you spend £25 you will receive a voucher for £2.50. The more they spend, the more vouchers they will receive!
These vouchers will then be handed to teachers at the beginning of the new term at their local school. The school can decide whether individual teachers redeem the vouchers individually or pool them together and redeem the full value as a school.
