West Midlands team helps breathe new life into Lichfield pre-school’s outdoor space

16 June 2023

A pre-school in Lichfield has received a cash boost to rejuvenate its outdoor spaces, thanks to our West Midlands region.

Boley Park Pre-School received a £2,000 donation from the West Midlands team as part of our Community Champions initiative. The funds will be used to upgrade the outside play area, allowing the children to make the most of the outdoors as well as develop their interpersonal skills, physical activity and enhance their playtime.

 A spokesperson for Boley Park Pre-School, said: “We’re absolutely delighted by this kind donation from Persimmon Homes. We have been fundraising for the play area for the last 6 years and with the help of Persimmon Homes we are now very close to making our dreams for the outside area a reality. Our goal has always been to create a vibrant outdoor space which provides our children with lots of learning opportunities including physical development, social skills, and well-being – as well as allowing them to have lots of fun.

 “The money that Persimmon has kindly gifted us has gone towards new resources for the pre-school’s play space, including flooring surfaces which will allow us to install a climbing frame - allowing our pupils to make the most of the space for years to come.”

David Greengrass, Sales Director of Persimmon Homes West Midlands, said: “What we do is about much more than just building homes, it’s about leaving a lasting positive legacy in the communities that we build in. We’re always delighted to lend a hand to local schools and community groups to boost their ongoing initiatives or contribute to causes that mean a lot to them. It’s great to see Boley Park Pre-School put the donation to good use already and we look forward to hearing how the pupils are enjoying their refreshed outdoor space!”
