Nursery children took their very first steps on the property ladder thanks to the help of our Ashington branch.
Children who attend the two-year-old provision at the Thomas Bewick Early Years Centre in Ashington are now the proud owners of a wooden playhouse! It was donated to their outdoor play area by Rook Matthews Sayer as part of our commitment to support projects in the community.
We were approached by the school and asked if there was any way we could help to improve the outdoor area and facilities for these children. We raised enough money to donate a beautiful play house and then erected a special sold sign next to the house.
Clare Lishman, Director of Early Years at NCEA, said: “This is a fantastic edition to the two-year-old provision’s outdoor facilities and the children are already having lots of fun playing inside. Outdoor play is vital for a child’s learning and development and the playhouse is great for their imagination and creativity and can be anything from a house to a castle to a shop.”
“We aim to ensure that there is always lots of exciting activities going on, and that importantly we are helping to prepare them for starting nursery and school.”
Caroline Davison, our Ashington Branch Manager, visited the centre to hand over the keys to the children and was absolutely thrilled at their reaction. “We are delighted to be able to help. It was a great moment to hand the keys over to the children and see them enjoying their new play house.”
“We’re really pleased that we were able to help make a difference in our local area. We want to help improve the lives of local people through the community amenities making our local towns and villages great places to live for everyone.”
In the past as a group, we have raised over £25k for nominated charities. This year we are planning to support smaller charities in the local communities where our 17 branches are based. Our aim for 2016 is to help improve the lives of local people through the community amenities, making our local towns and villages great places to grow up and live for everyone.
