A helping hand at Ivybridge nursery school

Eight members of our South West team helped to build a new play area for an Ivybridge nursery school as part of our Helping Hands volunteering initiative.

Led by Sales Administrator Gemma Curley and including managing director Alex Hugo, the team spent a day levelling the ground, laying new turf, installing a new filter drain, creating a building area and replacing the sandpit roof.

We also donated timber and roofing materials to help transform the muddy and rundown play area.

Manor Primary School is just over one mile from our Saxon Gate development in Ivybridge. 

Saxon gate features more than 50 modern two, three and four bedroom new homes situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.

Alex Hugo, managing director of Wain Homes South West said, "We had a fantastic day at Manor Primary School and our team of volunteers rolled up their sleeves to create something very special for the children. I am pleased to see our Helping Hands scheme is already benefitting some of the communities where we work."

Karen Dixon, head teacher at Manor Primary School, said: "Thank you to Wain Homes for all their help, we simply couldn't have done it without them.

"We are delighted with all the hard work they did and their enthusiasm for the project was brilliant."

Helping Hands will see every member of the Wain Homes team volunteer for a day in their local community, helping out a range of charities, community groups, schools and nurseries.
