EH Smith make materials donation to BPT

Two schools within Broadleaf Partnership Trust have benefitted from generous donations from builders merchants EH Smith.

The company’s Sutton Coldfield branch came to the rescue with materials to be used for students gardening work at both Plantsbrook and Holland House.

Infants and Nursery students will have the opportunity to build and maintain their own planters thanks to a delivery of concrete blocks, sand and cement, whilst multiple tonnes of bark will enable Plantsbrook’s eco club to revitalise the green areas around school.

Sustainability Lead for BPT Oliver Marsh helped secure the donations and says everyone is grateful for the help in transforming our sites:

“It is a very generous donation and we would like to express our sincere thanks to EH Smith and especially their charitable trust for providing these materials.

Discussions have been on going for some time as to how we can transform the outside areas of Plantsbrook and this is just a small step in our plans to revitalise the site whilst remaining sustainable.

Holland House already makes excellent use of it’s ‘Forest School’ lessons, but the addition of the planters and some gardening work around the site will hopefully make a big difference and also further inspire the youngest of our children to get involved with sustainability.”
