Richmond Pharmacology has made a substantial contribution to Snowsfields Primary School in Southwark by providing a collection of STEM books for its library. This initiative aligns with the celebration of National STEM Day on November 8, 2023.

Dr. Jorg Taubel and Dr. Ulrike Lorch, co-founders of Richmond Pharmacology, personally delivered the STEM book collection to Snowsfields Primary, located just a short distance from Richmond's head quarters in Newcomen Street SE1, near Guy’s Hospital.

The co-founders presented the carefully selected collection of nearly 50 STEM books to Zohra Benotmane, Co-Head of Snowsfields Primary School. The collection, featuring works by various authors, aims to inspire and engage students across all year groups in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Notable titles include "Dr. Maggie's Grand Tour of the Solar System” by Maggie Aderin-Pocock, “Amazing Evolution” by Wesley Robbins, and “Engineer Like Me” by Dr. Shini Somara.

Expressing gratitude for the donation, Ms. Benotmane highlighted the school's commitment to providing high-quality texts to enhance students' reading experiences and curriculum engagement. She acknowledged the financial challenges associated with acquiring non-fiction titles related to science, engineering, and mathematics and emphasised the lasting impact of Richmond's donation on current and future generations of students.

Dr. Ulrike Lorch shared Richmond's commitment to both scientific curiosity and the local community, expressing delight in supporting Snowsfields through the donation of STEM books. She expressed hopes that the books would inspire young minds, potentially sparking an interest in scientific research.

The connection between Snowsfields and Richmond originated through James Rickard, Chief Scientific Officer of Richmond’s Research Institute and a parent at the school. Rickard, aware of the school's need for local support, facilitated the collaboration and anticipates a continued partnership, including talks by Richmond experts for students and their families.

James Rickard commented, “We hope that this will be the start of a continuing relationship with Snowsfields, and we are already discussing plans for Richmond experts to come back to give talks to the children and their families. We’re always keen to help people in Southwark get excited and engaged in STEM.”
