The team behind brand new Newton Mearns community, Maidenhill, are helping local school children build on their learning with a donation of educational toys.
Representatives of CALA Homes (West) and Taylor Wimpey West Scotland visited children at Isobel Mair School to hand over brand new construction play equipment worth hundreds of pounds.
The donation included construction worker costumes, toolboxes and a workbench and life-size toy bricks – among other items – to help the children build their imaginations.
And some of the children, aged between five and 10 years, had the chance to put the donation to the test with the help of sales executives Angela O’Hara of CALA Homes (West) and Elaine Reilly from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland – both of whom will work on the Maidenhill development.
Angela said: “It’s been absolutely wonderful to personally hand over the play equipment to the children. Seeing their faces light up when they saw the toys was just priceless. The team at Maidenhill is going to be part of the local community for some time to come, so to be able to offer support to local schools and groups is fantastic.”
Elaine added: “We’ve had a great time delivering some brand new construction toys to the children at Isobel Mair School. We wanted to bring something imaginative that also had some educational value – and that could be enjoyed by as many of the pupils as possible. We’re hoping the children will get plenty of fun from the donation.”
Sarah Clark, Head Teacher at Isobel Mair School said: “We were absolutely delighted to receive the offer of a donation of brand new play equipment from the team at Maidenhill. The children were thrilled to see brand new toys when they came into our ‘Adventure Room’, and I’m sure they’ll have a wonderful time letting their imaginations run wild on their own mini ‘building sites’. We can’t thank the team enough for their generosity.”
A total of 185 homes will be built during the first phase of construction at Maidenhill.
