Donation helps Telford school pupils kick start tree planting scheme
In partnership with The Wrekin Housing Trust, Morris Property have helped Donnington Wood C of E Junior School in Telford with their latest gardening project, aiding pupils to transform their outdoor space with a selection of gardening tools.
The tools have been put to good use, with students of the school planting 100 trees and creating a wildflower garden.
Martin James, Area Investment Manager for The Wrekin Housing Group said:
“It is a pleasure and a privilege to be able support Donnington Wood C of E Junior School as part of our plans to invest in the local area.
“Giving back to our communities is a vital part of the work we do and we are absolutely delighted to be able to support the school in this way. It’s great to see how passionate the pupils are about their outdoor space and we’re happy to help support their green-fingered efforts.”
Steve Flavell, Construction Manager at Morris Property added:
“We were impressed by the way the children have embraced this project and wanted to show that with practical help. We’re planning to build them a pergola this summer to enhance their garden even more. As a business working in local communities, we feel it is important to support young people’s environmental initiatives.”
Robert Fox, Headteacher at Donnington Wood C of E Junior School said:
“Our garden project has been a huge collective effort. All of our pupils have been hugely enthusiastic about the project and we hope that this encourages them to take responsibility and care for our school environment.
“Taking part in a project like this has taught our children not only the importance of looking after our green space, but also what we can achieve when we work together as a whole school community in this way.
“I would like to thank both Morris Property and The Wrekin Housing Group for their generous donation – it really has made a huge difference.”
