Wain Homes Boost for Preston School Book Lovers

Budding bookworms at a Preston primary school received the gift of a new book for Christmas thanks to a donation from Wain Homes.

We donated £500 to Broughton-in-Amounderness CE Primary School to provide 140 Year 1 and Year 2 pupils with a story book present in the last week of term.

The donation will also be used to fund additional Key Stage 1 curriculum books to help the children with their learning.

Wain Homes is currently building two, three, four and five-bedroom new homes in Broughton at Pinfold Manor on Garstang Road, within walking distance from the school.

Richard Chamberlain, Managing Director of Wain Homes North West, said: “Having access to exciting books not only helps children learn reading and writing but encourages their creativity and imagination.

“While screens play an important role in a child’s education, it is important that the magic of reading a book doesn’t disappear and we hope every child enjoys their gift and is inspired to develop their book collection.”

Simon Yates, Key Stage 1 Leader at Broughton-in-Amounderness CE Primary School, said: “Books are a fantastic way of enhancing a child’s appetite for learning and we are incredibly grateful to Wain Homes.

“We invited Santa in to the school to handover the books which include stories such as The Grizzly Itch and Hugless Douglas and the Big Sleep.

“Such was the generosity of Wain Homes’ donation, we are also able to purchase new books for the school to supplement the curriculum and add a greater variety of stories to our classroom reading areas.”

The book donation is part of Wain Homes’ ongoing commitment to supporting and enhancing local communities and we also donated a hamper as a prize for the school’s Christmas fete.

Richard added: “We take our role as a responsible developer very seriously and this includes supporting many of the vital services which surround our developments.

“Having access to high quality local schools is important to many of our customers and the wider community and we were proud to support the school in this way.”
