Mansell Homes Donation
St Michael and All Angels School in Woodchurch are thoroughly enjoying play time thanks to construction contractors Mansell Homes who donated vital funding to replace old play equipment.
From hula hoops and agility ladders to badminton racquets and space hoppers, play time for the youngsters now involves learning important life skills such as; playing together, increased co-ordination respecting equipment and most importantly how to have fun.
Donna Pearson, who works at the school, took her plight for play equipment to Magenta Living who approached Mansell Homes for help whilst they were working on site at their exciting New Hey Road development in Woodchurch.
Mansell Homes, part of the Balfour Beatty Group, were happy to offer their support as community involvement is a key priority for them. Neil Rowbottom, Mansell Homes Project Manager at New Hey Road says: “It was a complete pleasure to provide funding for such a worthy cause. Having the chance to visit the school and watch the delight on pupil’s faces as they enjoyed the new equipment was a particular highlight for us.”
Without this vital donation, sports day would have been a wash out, which is an essential event in any schools calendar. Investment in equipment such as racing sacks, plastic eggs and spoons and leg ties for the obligatory three legged race, meant that the youngsters could enjoy a fun-fuelled day.
Magenta Living has also been working closely with St Michael and All Angels to provide a community grant to revamp their library. The pupils also took part in a street naming competition for the new build project on New Hey Road.
