Housebuilder Persimmon has donated 10,000 bricks to Leeds College of Building as part of their activities taking place across the country for National Apprenticeship Week.

Damien Mason-Harding, Curriculum Manager at Leeds College of Building said: ‘’We’re extremely grateful to Persimmon for their generous donation.

‘There is a huge demand for newly qualified Bricklayers in the industry and we rely on these generous donations to support our students’ learning.

‘Their contribution isn’t just providing us with some materials, it’s supporting us to build the skills of future aspiring bricklayers. Together, we’re building a stronger future!’

Lisa Haywood, Regional Apprenticeship Manager, Persimmon Yorkshire, said: ‘At Persimmon, we’re proud of our record of developing and inspiring the next generation of construction workers.

‘We’re delighted to support Leeds College of Building by providing students with the materials they need to gain practical experience in one of the many fulfilling careers construction has to offer.’
