We have kindly donated funds to Moira Primary School to help with the purchase of some vital school equipment.
We made contact with the school because one of our most sought-after developments, Woodcroft, is situated in the heart of the Leicestershire/Derbyshire village of Moira. We were keen to make a difference within the local community around our flourishing development by giving something back to the younger generation in addition to our Section 106 planning obligations.
Under Section 106 obligations, house builders must contribute an amount to the local community when planning a new development. The most common obligations include; Public Open Space, Affordable Housing, Education, Highways and town centre improvements.
Talking about our commitment to local communities, Director of Sales and Marketing Alison Kendall, said, “Peveril Homes always goes the extra mile in order to give back to local areas and schools – either through monetary donations or providing time and resource to make a significant difference to ongoing projects or events,”.
She continues, “Wherever we build we always fulfill our statutory 106 obligations and ensure that we make an additional voluntary contribution within the local area in some way,”.
“Primary schools sit right in the heart of any community, so we are delighted to be able to work in partnership with Moira Primary School and help with the purchase this much-needed equipment,” Alison adds.
The money donated will go towards equipment which will assist with learning and development for pupils in the school across all ages. This includes the purchase of classroom apparatus such as magnifying glasses and geometric sets, as well as playground equipment such as a water play table and a Shiplap shed.
Karen Hambleton, Headteacher at Moira Primary School, is grateful for the offer of support from Peveril Homes and recognises the difference these items will make to the children when it comes to their development – “It is essential that the children are surrounded by the right tools in order for them to make progress both inside and outside the classroom,” said Karen.
“As a school, we are always grateful for any support like this because funding is always tight in the education sector. The children will love the new equipment and we can’t wait to see their reaction to the new resources!” added Karen.
