One of our workers put his carpentry skills to use for a Plymouth school by helping teachers and pupils refresh their play area.
Customer service technician Damian Steer, from our South West region, volunteered two working days at Plaistow Hill Infant and Nursery School in St Budeaux in Plymouth, constructing new sandpits, benches and fences.
“We are so grateful to Damian and Linden Homes for volunteering the time to help our school,” said headteacher Fiona Hazeel. “The children love their new play area and the money saved will enable our school to spend more on the pupils, rather than paying for a carpenter.”
Damian said: “I was more than happy to help out at Plaistow Hill School; all of the staff and pupils seemed incredibly grateful and loved seeing me working away.”
Linden Homes South West managing director Nigel Palmer added: “We were very pleased to be able to help Plaistow Hill School. We have a number of new home developments in the area and try to help the local community wherever possible.”
