RCT school given eco garden grant

19 March 2021

Children at a primary school in Rhondda Cynon Taf will be learning about nature in a new eco garden, thanks to a donation from Persimmon.

Ynyshir Primary School in Porth has bagged £1,000 from Persimmon East Wales through its long-running Community Champions scheme. Each month Persimmon donates up to £64,000 to worthy causes.

The school is looking to develop its outdoor areas, including an eco garden, where pupils will be able to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. Teacher Jade Davies aid: “We are very grateful to Persimmon Homes for this generous donation.

“It’s going to give the children at our school the chance to experience opportunities they may not receive at home.

“It will be fantastic to see our children learning and playing outdoors. It’s great that a large company like Persimmon gets involved with the local community in this way.”

Victoria Williams, sales director at Persimmon East Wales, said: “We’re delighted to be able to support the school with this grant. “Learning outside gives children the chance to engage with nature and to understand how food grows. “We hope the pupils enjoy their new eco garden for many years to come.”

Persimmon is building right across South Wales, including in Creigiau at its The Parish @ Llanilltern Village.
