Welcome to SaveWMC.org, a website run by a group of volunteers dedicating their time and efforts to counter the unnecessary closure of Wedgwood Memorial College by Stoke-on-Trent City Council. Our campaign group proposes that the College be run as an Independent Educational Trust (such as at Higham Hall), freeing the City Council from its financial responsibility.
To this end we were engaged in consultation with the Council and have launched a scheme to raise money so that there is an assured cash flow in place for the first couple of months of operation whilst the Trust waits for receipts to come in from people attending courses. The scheme has raised over £50,000 of pledges.
Wedgwood Memorial College's future does not have to be bleak. Working together we can bring it back to its former glory.
