Last week, members from across Saxon Weald spent the day lending a hand at St Mary’s CE Primary School.
The eager group of volunteers were able to apply some tender loving care to the school grounds. Together, the group tackled a range of tasks, including painting classrooms, cleaning the outside fence, repairing a shed roof and helping the school’s caretaker put together a climbing frame for the playground.
Alex Bird, headteacher at St Mary’s School, thanked the team for their hard work: “We are so, so grateful for all of the work the team carried out. Saxon Weald has been such a blessing to us. The volunteers were so positive and achieved so much in the time available. I’m delighted to have had the group’s help.”
Steven Dennis, Saxon Weald’s Chief Executive, commented: “We were thrilled to have the chance to help at St Mary’s, given so many schools work to a tight and often limited budget. It’s also fantastic to see members of staff from all over the business using their skills and working together to make a difference to the community.”
