BurySt Edmunds schools get some constructive help from Havebury Housing
Boxes of lego and some unwanted filing cabinets have been donated to schools in Bury St Edmunds.
Havebury Housing handed over 12 boxes of the building bricks which will help youngsters from Tollgate Primary School and Barrow Primary School with a maths project.
Meanwhile County Upper students were given the filing cabinets which Havebury no longer requires as it moves further towards a paper free environment,
Havebury health and safety facilities manager, Ed Zipfel, said the Lego had been in need of a good home while the filing cabinets and folders had become available as a result of an environmental project at Havebury.
“The document management scheme aims to reduce our level of printing, helping us contribute to a greener environment. As a result of storiny less hard copies of documents, a number of our cabinets and folders became surplus to requirements.
“With County Upper School showing an interest in having more filing equipment around its premises it made sense to donate the cabinets and folders to them. We’re delighted that the All Through Trust schools are able to use this equipment.”
Helen Ashe, Barrow headteacher, said: “We are very grateful to Havebury for their generous donations. The Lego kits complement those the trust has recently been awarded for a joint mathematics project.”
