ehB helps Milverton youngsters raise cash for playground equipment

Mon 17 Feb 2020

Children at Leamington’s Milverton Primary School have been selling calendars to raise money to buy new equipment for the school playground.

So far they have raised £555 towards the £12,000 they’d like for a climbing tower for key stage one pupils, who are between five and seven years old.

And their coffers have been boosted by a donation towards the calendar’s production from their local estate agency ehB Residential, which has a long-standing relationship with the school.

The calendar is filled with self-penned drawings of the youngsters and one of school head Matt Fisher - although he says he didn’t draw the picture himself, giving that task to one of his more artistically talented pupils!

The calendar project is the latest initiative which has won financial backing from ehB. The past two years saw the agency support the school’s Grow a Pound scheme – which saw each child investing a pound in capital equipment which they used to set up micro-businesses and earn money for the school.

Some of the pupils clubbed together to buy more expensive items, with purchases including gardening gloves, nail polish and mops, enabling them to offer weeding, manicures and cleaning services.

ehB Residential MD Edward Bromwich said: “We are very keen to support our local community and so were delighted to help out with this latest project. The children are very enterprising and have been enthusiastic about selling the calendars to their parents and grandparents. It enhances the sense of community both within the school, by children working together to create something fantastic, and among the wider Milverton area.  As a local business we are also keen to see the children demonstrate an entrepreneurial spirit.”

"Thank you all very much for selling Brittain Lane for us, everything went very smoothly and your help and advice was much appreciated. We highly recommend ehB. Many thanks."
Kelly and Andy
