Winvic Teams Up With Ward To Help Orchard Primary School With Their Spring Cleaning

Winvic’s site team at Plot 1, East Midlands Distribution Centre located in Castle Donington, are busy constructing a new speculative 521,000 sq ft Regional Distribution Centre for client Panattoni, but they have taken time out of their busy schedule to help Orchard Community Primary School with a bit of spring cleaning.

Winvic teamed up with Ward who specialise in recycling, and together they provided a skip, cleared unwanted items from the school playground and built a new shed and gate for the school.  But what excited the children most, was the 30 Easter Eggs donated for the end of term school raffle and the 10 sets of children’s personal protective equipment (PPE), which will be used for role play and dress-up. Who knows, maybe it will inspire the next generation of Project Managers, Engineers and Health and Safety Executives?

But the hard work doesn’t stop there; more work will be taking place over the summer to tidy up the school’s wildlife pond.

Ben Shearman Operations Manager for Winvic commented “As a partner of the Considerate Constructors Scheme we enjoy giving back to the local community as part of our role on site, but we are also aware that this type of work also improves the image of construction and promotes the different roles on site to the next generation, who may consider joining the industry in years to come. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Orchard Community Primary School and look forward to helping them with future improvements to the school during the summer.”
