Our valued supporters


We are supported by local businesses such as Akamba Garden Centre in Solihull and also Imagination Street in Bromsgrove. Matt Jinks joint owner of Imagination Street, a fun and creative play centre for children, felt that it was important to support a charity that enhanced the lives of children in most need. The business is organising a series of fundraising activities with the aim of contributing to the £10,000 needed to extend Brainhouse Academy buildings.

What we doWe are generously supported with donations of funds and equipment. In Sept 2011, Mitsubishi Electric donated two photovoltaic panels to mount at the school in order to power a pump to draw water up from a borehole in the grounds.

Mitsubishi Electric has a mission to make a world of difference to peoples’ lives by helping them heat, cool, ventilate and power their environments through the use of advanced technology. This donation of solar panels will provide the school with a safe and reliable source of electricity and provide for the pumping of water – ‘A dream of our school’, as the staff told us.

The solar power has helped provide lighting to enable the children to carry on with their studies on cloudy days and at night, so that they have the best chance to improve their own education and build a better life for themselves and their communities.


We have had extensive support from the Rotary Club and also the Ladies Circle who have made us their charity of the year and raised significant funds through community events.  ACEF is also supported by a number of  Scouts and Guiding units across the country.


We are working closely with a number of schools, our partners have included Waverley School, Blossomfield Infant and Nursery School, Finstall First School, Parkfield Community School, East Halton and Windsor High School and Sixth Form in Halesowen. As well as raising funds, some schools have sent volunteers developing resources and activities for teaching at Brainhouse Academy, creating sports opportunities for the children and developing themselves throughout the process.

We are always keen to broaden relationships with educational establishments.
