Helping Hands brighten up Berry Hill Primary School

Five hard-working members of Two Rivers Housing staff spent a day brightening-up the children’s and infants’ play areas at Berry Hill Primary School as part of the ‘Helping Hands’ project. The project gives each staff member a day out of their normal working hours to help other organisations and charities within the communities it serves.

The team, representing five different departments across the not-for-profit organisation, carried out a number of tasks including re-painting the ‘pencils’ in the playground and giving a new lease of life to the infants’ picket fence. From faded and tired to bright and colourful, the transformation was well-received by both parents and children alike.

Anthea Tawney, from the Community Engagement team at Two Rivers, said: “We were lucky with the weather and had a lovely day at Berry Hill Primary school. It was great to see the difference we made, from the faded wood to the nice new bright colours, and to see the reaction from the children and their parents. The school very kindly provided our lunch, so the hard work was worth it!”
