Veezu has donated £1000 to Meersbrook Bank Primary School to aid the school’s ongoing efforts to enhance their outdoor spaces.

Meersbrook Bank embarked on their playground renovation project last year, raising funds through sponsored cycles, bake sales and corporate sponsorship. Over Christmas the first phase was carried out, partially replacing dangerous surfacing in the foundation unit, and introducing a play tower, construction area and water play area. With six phases in total, the project is estimated to cost around £200,000.

The Funded by Veezu donation has been allocated to the purchase of wooden playground equipment for pupils to play, socialise, and develop essential skills outside the classroom environment.

Sacha Skinner, Regional Marketing Manager at Veezu, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Meersbrook Bank on their mission to create a safe and fun outdoor environment for students. The wooden playground equipment is a great addition to the playground, and we can’t wait to visit again and see the complete renovation.”

Mrs Harvey, Head Teacher of Meersbrook Bank Primary School, expressed her gratitude for the donation, stating: “Outdoor play is a crucial part of primary education and has huge benefits for children’s physical and mental health and wellbeing.

“The children are working hard to organise their own fundraising activities, but corporate sponsorship is vital to complete this project. We are extremely grateful for Veezu’s generous donation which has contributed to the enhancement of the outdoor play experience.”
