Eldene Pre-School and Toddlers has unveiled its latest addition to the children’s garden and play areas thanks to a donation from Swindon’s Wasdell Packaging.
Parents and staff had rallied together after part of the garden was vandalised, creating lots of different areas for the children to use as well as areas to grow plants and vegetables, however the play area was left in need of refurbishment.
Tina Azzopardi, Manager of Eldene Pre-School Parents Committee, approached Wasdell Packaging to see if they could help them with their plans in the next stage of refurbishment to replace the safety floor in the outside play area as well as for refurbishing their climbing equipment. As a non-profit making charity, projects like this need extra funds to be raised.
Tina said: “We are so grateful for the large donation it was so unexpected, the children benefit from using the outside area every day and they certainly love their new Dino Mound! So I would like to say a big thank you to Wasdell Packaging, you have made so many children happy.”
Martin Tedham, Managing Director of Wasdell, said: “It’s great to see the new play equipment in place and it is certainly being well-used by the children.
“Eldene Pre-School is a busy and happy place and the children are given lots of different activities and ways of learning through play. We’re pleased to be able to support the local community and help to provide the children with the best start.”
