We have recently donated £650 to Hemswell Cliff Primary School in Gainsborough so they can continue their School Breakfast for Children Programme throughout term time.
The programme began last year and whilst the school had all the equipment to continue the provision, they required sponsorship to purchase the food for pupils. Our donation will mean they can continue to provide students with bagels for breakfast on every day of the school year.
We are currently working near to the school, building a new purpose built central operational services depot at Caenby Corner for West Lindsey District Council. The site team became aware of the breakfast initiative after members of our team delivered an educational presentation at the school, as part of our commitment to delivering authentic social value outputs in the local community.
Stacey Clasper, Trainee Technician on the site and Responsible Business Manager Jack Kidder spoke about the different roles in construction, the importance of site safety as well as introducing the pupils to Ivor and Honor Goodsite - mascots of the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
In a letter from two pupils on behalf of the school, they said: “We really enjoyed your information on construction. We collected a lot of information during the time you was here. All of us really enjoyed learning about the construction vehicles. Another thing we are thankful for is sponsoring our bagels. We were not supposed to have bagels anymore but thanks to you we can.”
It’s fantastic to see our contractor supporting the local community by teaching the children about safety at work and also going the extra mile by sponsoring their breakfast initiative. As well as giving children a much-needed meal, providing breakfasts will also helped foster a real sense of community at the school.
